An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may require this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple if you get a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

You will be able to check out comprehensive access logs for any Internet site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account set up on our innovative website hosting platform.

As soon as you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each of them. Initiating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on that button and the change shall take effect instantly. You may save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the exact same section. The latter will be available all the time, even after you deactivate the feature for a certain domain address or subdomain.
