An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you opt for one of our shared hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for every single domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
