An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also commonly called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud hosting account and take a look at 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 that'll be available next to every single domain/subdomain. In case the option is active, you shall see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your computer and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you don't require one, you could stop it with just a click from the same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking the Download link.
