An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. These files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really easy when you purchase a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll 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 inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform shall generate access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
