An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the Operating System, the web 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 website. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you opt for one of our cloud hosting packages, you will receive thorough access logs for all your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and at any time. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered individually for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
