An access log is a text file which contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "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, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is typically included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and anytime. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced web hosting platform will generate access logs for any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
