An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you commonly 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 overall performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you buy a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
