An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy when you purchase a hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing 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 very same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

When you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll 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 generating logs is a single click on the On button you'll see there. The function can be enabled independently for any website regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then view it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
