An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web 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 site. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may require 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 performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your shared web hosting
account and navigate to this section, you'll find a list of all the domains
and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you'll see a download link together with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantaneously, so if you no longer require one, you could stop it with a click from the same exact section of the CP. You shall still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
