An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you could need this sort of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you obtain a website hosting
from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain
you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.

You will be able to save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the very same section. The latter shall be available all the time, even if you disable the function for a particular domain or subdomain.
