An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will 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 each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with only a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain you have in your account. After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
