An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually 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 more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely simple if you get a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain you have in your account. When you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click shall enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
