An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you could need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you opt for one of our cloud hosting solutions, you will get thorough access logs for your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and anytime. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation could be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
