An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the Internet 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, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require such a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. As you sign in to your hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you no longer require one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You will still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be permitted via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for every single domain or subdomain that you have within your account. Whenever you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
