An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so when you have a 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 features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a cloud web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain which you have in your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
