An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need this type of a log is if you want 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 typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you get a hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
