An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so if 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 usually features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer 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 Shared Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your shared hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you don't need one, you'll be able to stop it with only a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel. You shall still be able to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will generate access logs for every single website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this function at any time by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
