An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may require such a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you pick one of our website hosting
solutions, you shall get comprehensive access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be activated independently for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a complete 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 view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
