An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just 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 good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy when you acquire a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. When you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button which you will see there. The function can be activated independently for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
