An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so if 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 typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you might need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting
from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain name
you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to see detailed access logs for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server
account set up on our innovative hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to enable the function for every single domain name or subdomain within the account separately, which means that you can get logs only for the websites you need. After you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will discover a list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of all of them. Triggering or disabling the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing that button and the change shall take effect instantaneously. You could save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the same exact section. The latter shall be available all of the time, even if you disable the feature for a specific domain address or subdomain.
