An access log features a record of all 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 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will 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 each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require 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 overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy if you get a cloud web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
