An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes 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 most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require such a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you pick one of our shared website hosting packages, you’ll receive thorough access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and at any time. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each domain name or subdomain you have within your account. Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall activate the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, that you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
