An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you would like 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 regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.

You shall be able to view comprehensive access logs for any website that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account created on our revolutionary web hosting platform.

Enabling or disabling the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on this button and the change shall take effect instantaneously. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the exact same section. The latter shall be available at all times, even if you deactivate the feature for a specific domain or subdomain.
