An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally simple if you purchase a shared hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. When you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, that you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
