An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes 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 popular files on your site. The log, that is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you wish 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 standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally simple if you purchase a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
