An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you could need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you opt for one of our shared web hosting plans, you will get detailed access logs for all your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and at any time. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click will enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you could then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
