An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, 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, graphics, and so on. All these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer website, is usually provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily activate or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

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 clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature may be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. Once you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great comfort. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
