An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage 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 web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

When you order a shared website hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will generate access logs for each Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can disable this function anytime by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
