An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case 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 web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require such a log is if you intend 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 regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have within your account. After you log in and visit 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 trigger the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
