An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy if you acquire a web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
