An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you opt for one of our cloud hosting plans, you'll get in-depth access logs for your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
