An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. 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 usually 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 a good idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll 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 site that you have. You could save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
