An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
When you buy a shared web hosting
from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for each site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like 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 switch the default Off option to On. You may stop this feature whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered 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 will still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
