An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple when you acquire a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be activated through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. When you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
