An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every 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 typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you purchase a shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
