An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with two 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 Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy if you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click shall trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
