An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a webpage with two 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 web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you opt for one of our web hosting solutions, you'll get thorough access logs for all your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created within the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your PC and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you can then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
