An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you buy a hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
