An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally features 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's also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you could need this type of a log is if you want 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 typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy when you acquire a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
