An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is thorough, so if you have a webpage with 2 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 OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you obtain a shared website hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
