An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you order a website hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
