An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every single 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 commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you obtain a website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a few clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
