An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically 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 an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you pick one of our web hosting plans, you will get thorough access logs for all your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and whenever you want. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will activate the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
