An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. 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 only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. As you sign in to your shared hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your PC and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantaneously, so if you no longer require one, you may stop it with just a click from the same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated web hosting platform will create access logs for every single Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this feature at any time by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
