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 when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you could need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you obtain a cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
