An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require such a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

If you obtain a cloud web hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be generated 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 Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall 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 separately for every site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
