An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, 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, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you could need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy when you buy a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each and every domain name or subdomain you have within your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
