An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the 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 site. The log, that is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system 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 statistics.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you acquire a web hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Enabling or disabling the generation of access logs is as elementary as pressing this button and the change will take effect instantly. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link located in the same section. The latter will be available at all times, even after you deactivate the feature for a particular domain or subdomain.
