An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage 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 every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. When you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and go to this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you no longer need one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel. You shall still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than several mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and visit 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 all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
