An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you intend 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 conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a few clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be enabled independently for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
