An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may require this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button that will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you no longer need one, you could stop it with only a click from the 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 host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
