An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you get a cloud web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will 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 exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
