An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall 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 an idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you might need this sort of 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 standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you obtain a shared web hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall generate access logs for each site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can stop this function anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
