An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so forth. These files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log shows 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. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple if you purchase a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. Once 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 will start producing 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 need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be activated separately for any Internet site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
