An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy if you buy a shared website hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this function at any time by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
