An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the web 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 website. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get a cloud website hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each 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 conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website 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 very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature at any time by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
