An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web 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 OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. When you sign in to your website hosting account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you'll see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with only a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform will create access logs for every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can stop this function whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the very same section of the CP, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
