An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes 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 more complete picture about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you could need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to see in depth access logs for any site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account set up on our innovative website hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to activate the function for every single domain or subdomain within the account independently, which means that you can get logs just for the sites that you need. When you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will find a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of all of them. Triggering or disabling the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on that button and the change will take effect instantaneously. You can easily save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the very same section. The latter shall be available always, even if you deactivate the function for a particular domain or subdomain.
