An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced web hosting platform will create access logs for each Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may stop this function whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
