An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you opt for one of our shared hosting packages, you’ll receive comprehensive access logs for all your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The function can be activated separately for any 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 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 within the Logs section of your CP.
