An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need such 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 don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your website hosting
account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domain names
and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you shall see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantly, so if you no longer need one, you could stop it with only a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Once you sign in, you can navigate to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of every one of them. Activating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as basic as clicking on that button and the change shall take effect right away. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the very same section. The latter will be available always, even if you disable the feature for a given domain address or subdomain.
