An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the Internet 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, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you could need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple when you buy a shared website hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
