An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. 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 a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you choose one of our web hosting plans, you’ll receive in-depth access logs for your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and anytime. You will find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function in 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 click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be enabled independently for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
