An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically 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 might need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your 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 web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you acquire a web hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.

As soon as you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each of them. Triggering or disabling the generation of access logs is as easy as pressing this button and the change shall take effect instantaneously. You can easily save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the exact same section. The latter shall be available always, even after you disable the feature for a given domain or subdomain.
