An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if 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 typically includes the date, the Operating System, 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 hottest files on your site. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a cloud web hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated 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 quickly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
