An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. These files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get a cloud website hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform shall create access logs for every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You may disable this feature whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
