An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may require such a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. When you sign in to your hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you'll see a download link together with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantly, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with just a click from the same section of the CP. You will still be able to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be enabled through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each domain or subdomain you have within your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
