An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to enable 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'll be able to save the file to your PC and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you no longer need one, you'll be able to stop it with only a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain or subdomain that you have within your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
