An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you pick one of our hosting solutions, you shall get comprehensive access logs for your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be triggered separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a complete list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
