An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the Internet 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 often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you buy a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be triggered separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
