An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system 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 Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall generate access logs for each Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On.

An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
