An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your website hosting account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you'll see a download link together with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you don't need one, you could stop it with simply a click from the same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already created content by clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each domain name or subdomain that you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
