An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
