An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that 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 plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so forth. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy when you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will 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 fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be triggered individually for any website no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find a full list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
