An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple when you acquire a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
