An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you pick one of our hosting plans, you shall get thorough access logs for all your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created inside the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a few clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you could then use on your personal computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
