An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may require this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your website hosting account and take a look at 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 press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you'll see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and view 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 only a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button which you can see there. The function can be activated individually for any website regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a 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 see it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
