An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you'll 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 view it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you no longer require one, you could stop it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already developed content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be triggered individually for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only 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 inside the Logs section of your CP.
