An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you might need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy if you acquire a hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to view comprehensive access logs for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account set up on our innovative website hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to enable the feature for each domain name or subdomain in the account independently, so that you can get logs only for the websites you need. As soon as you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each of them. Enabling or deactivating the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing that button and the change will take effect right away. You may save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the same section. The latter shall be available always, even after you deactivate the feature for a given domain or subdomain.
