An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes 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 hottest files on your site. The log, that is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you opt for one of our shared web hosting solutions, you will get detailed access logs for all your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created within the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and at any time. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
