An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy when you buy a cloud hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names
hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
