An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when 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 normally features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
