An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etc. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you purchase a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you'll 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 creating an access log for each of them the instant 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 fast 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 notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain you have in your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
