An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, 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 Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple if you acquire a shared website hosting
from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names
hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be enabled individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
