An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, 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 browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you get a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated hosting platform will create access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just 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 feature anytime by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
