An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
