An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each 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's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good 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 efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy when you get a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to see comprehensive access logs for any website that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account created on our groundbreaking website hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to enable the feature for each and every domain or subdomain inside the account independently, so that you can get logs just for the sites that you need. After you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of all of them. Activating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as easy as pressing this button and the change will take effect right away. You will be able to save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the same section. The latter shall be available always, even if you deactivate the function for a given domain address or subdomain.
