An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple when you purchase a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them when 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 simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge hosting platform will generate access logs for any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, 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 little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log in the same exact section of the CP, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
