An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your 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 website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy if you get a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall 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 no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. After you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will activate the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
