An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just 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 more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a shared website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to view in depth access logs for any Internet site that you host in a semi-dedicated server account set up on our progressive web hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to activate the feature for each and every domain name or subdomain in the account individually, so that you can get logs just for the websites that you need. Once you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each of them. Initiating or disabling the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing that button and the change shall take effect right away. You will be able to save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the same section. The latter will be available always, even after you deactivate the feature for a certain domain name or subdomain.
