An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case 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 usually contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you could need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you buy a cloud hosting
from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names
hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, it won't take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be activated via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain you have within your account. Once you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
