An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this kind 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 standard 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 buy a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you shall 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 creating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
