An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, 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 frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your 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 Web Hosting
When you buy a web hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
