An access log contains a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your website. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you may need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you buy a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
