An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally features the date, the OS, the 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, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy when you get a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
