An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with two 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 OS, 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 Internet site. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you could need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared hosting
from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each domain name
you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you shall have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be triggered separately for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
