An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for every 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 commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you might need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your web hosting account and visit this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your PC and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't need one, you can stop it with simply a click from the exact same section of the CP. You shall still have the ability to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.
