An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet 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 Internet site. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
