An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you buy a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain name or subdomain that you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will activate the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
