An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you purchase a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
