Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
