An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may require this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your shared hosting account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you shall see a download link and also the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you don't require one, you could stop it with simply a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. Once you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click will enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
