An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the web 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, which is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may require this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple when you purchase a hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a few clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be activated independently for any site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
