An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, like the referrer site, is sometimes included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple if you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge web hosting platform will generate access logs for any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
