An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally 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 website. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you could need this kind of a log is if you intend 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 which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
When you choose one of our cloud web hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for all your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is found 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 will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and at any time. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each domain or subdomain which you have in your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will activate the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you may then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
