An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you acquire a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform shall create access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log within the very same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
