An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need such 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 do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you obtain a cloud website hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
