An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you could need this type 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 typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you choose one of our shared web hosting solutions, you shall get detailed access logs for all of your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and anytime. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If 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 require them. The feature can be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have in your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall activate the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
