An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case 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 Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an 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 data that you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud hosting account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you'll see a download link and also the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you don't need one, you'll be able to stop it with just a click from the same section of the Control Panel. You'll still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our state-of-the-art hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
