An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is comprehensive, so when 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 normally features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every 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 conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
