An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the web 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 website. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy when you buy a web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
