An access log contains 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 example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, 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

When you get a cloud web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
