An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you acquire a shared web hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
