An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you buy a shared web hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for every site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this feature at any time by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
