An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall 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 good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may need such a log is if you wish 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 conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you purchase a website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be permitted through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
