An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy a cloud web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the very same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
