An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
