An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you acquire a web hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
