An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may 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 general performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple if you acquire a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

You will be able to look at comprehensive access logs for any Internet site that you host in a semi-dedicated server account created on our innovative website hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to enable the feature for each domain name or subdomain inside the account separately, which means that you can get logs only for the websites which you want. When you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of all of them. Initiating or disabling the generation of access logs is as simple as pressing this button and the change shall take effect straight away. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the same section. The latter will be available at all times, even if you disable the function for a given domain name or subdomain.
