An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. All of these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is usually supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you buy a cloud website hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within 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 gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be activated separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be disabled by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
