An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the 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 Internet site. The log, that is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you acquire a website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
