An access log includes 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 example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy if you get a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge website hosting platform will create access logs for each and every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log within the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
