An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud hosting account and take a look at this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you'll see a download link together with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you no longer require one, you'll be able to stop it with only a click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
