An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
