An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good 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 commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general 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 Hosting
When you buy a hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the very same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated web hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
