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 detailed, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you acquire a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be enabled through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
