An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you might need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you order a web 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 should be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
