An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you purchase a hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
