An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple when you acquire a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
