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 thorough, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple when you buy a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after 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 activated separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
