An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require such 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 regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you opt for one of our shared website hosting packages, you'll get comprehensive access logs for all your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created inside the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and at any time. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
