An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally 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 website. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you could need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your shared website hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with simply a click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
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 permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
