An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared hosting from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. After you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
