An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you could need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your computer and view it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't require one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the very same section of the CP. You shall still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the exact same section of the CP, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
