An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and go to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantly, so if you don't need one, you can stop it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already created content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be enabled through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain you have in your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall activate 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 permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you could then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
