An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you might need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you buy a web hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
