An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer 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 web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you pick one of our cloud hosting packages, you will get detailed access logs for all your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and whenever you want. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with just several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The function can be triggered individually for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find the full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you could 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 within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
