An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting
from us, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name
you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
