An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when 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 activated separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
