An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you might need 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 functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
When you order a hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
