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 detailed, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet 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 website. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

When you order a shared website hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain or subdomain you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, that you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
