An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet 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 website. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you purchase a web hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the very same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform will create access logs for each Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log inside the same section of the CP, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
