An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is typically provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy if you get a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. When you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
