An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you acquire a cloud web hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the exact same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be activated separately for any site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed 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 laptop or computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
