An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a shared website hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will 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'll have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button which you can see there. The function can be enabled independently for any website no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
