An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case 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 usually contains the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you choose one of our web hosting packages, you'll get detailed access logs for all of your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled independently and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
