An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may require 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 do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Our custom-built Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your web hosting account and take a look at this section, you shall find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will 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 application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantly, so if you no longer need one, you could stop it with just a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be activated separately for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
