An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains 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 hottest files on your website. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
