An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you purchase a cloud website hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up will 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 separately for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
