An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you acquire a hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the very same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
