An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you buy a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domains 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'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain or subdomain which you have within your account. After 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 all of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
