An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may require such a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same exact section of the CP. 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 Servers

You'll be able to view detailed access logs for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account set up on our revolutionary web hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to enable the feature for each domain or subdomain inside the account individually, so you can get logs only for the websites which you want. After you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each one of them. Initiating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing this button and the change will take effect right away. You will be able to save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the very same section. The latter shall be available all the time, even if you disable the feature for a given domain or subdomain.
