An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is typically provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple if you purchase a web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them when 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 easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find the full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation could be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
