An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require such a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As you sign in to your shared hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you don't require one, you could stop it with just a mouse click from the same section of the CP. You'll still have the ability to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
