An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard 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 our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could 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'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
