An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall 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 file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you order a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
