An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a 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 features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every single domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you shall see a download link together with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantaneously, so if you no longer need one, you could stop it with just a click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated website hosting platform will generate access logs for each Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the CP, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
