An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your personal computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you don't require one, you'll be able to stop it with just a mouse click from the very same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain which you have within your account. Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
