An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you might need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
