An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically 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 more complete picture about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require such a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC 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 site stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
