An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you get a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be triggered independently for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
