An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you could need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you opt for one of our website hosting packages, you will receive comprehensive access logs for all your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created within the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.
