An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy when you acquire a shared website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced web hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function at any time by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
