An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the web 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 Internet site. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general 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 Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy if you buy a shared hosting
from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names
hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. Whenever you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
