An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
When you purchase a shared web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain that you have inside your account. Once you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
