An access log features a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features 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 most popular files on your website. The log, that's also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require such a log is if you intend 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 web stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
