An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud web hosting plans, you shall get detailed access logs for your sites. 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 thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered separately for any website no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
