An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you could need such a log is if you wish 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 standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you acquire a hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact 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 collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated website hosting platform shall create access logs for every website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this feature anytime by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
