An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you pick one of our shared web hosting solutions, you will receive detailed access logs for your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
