An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you buy a hosting from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and 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 one of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
