An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you might need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy if you buy a web hosting
from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains
hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated website hosting platform shall create access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
