An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you might need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our state-of-the-art hosting platform will create access logs for each and every website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this function whenever you want by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the exact same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
