An access log contains a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you might need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer 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 web stats.

When you acquire a website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each 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 conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
