An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall generate access logs for every site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this function at any time by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log in the same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
