An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require such a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the standard 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 really easy if you purchase a shared website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing 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 quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
