An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple when you get a shared website hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names
hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
