An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the 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, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy when you purchase a cloud web hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains
hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have in your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
