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 which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is oftentimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you buy a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for every single Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
