An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you purchase a web hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
