An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer website, is sometimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you acquire a shared website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and this 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 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 quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be permitted through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
