An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics 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 would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you can then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
