An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, and so on. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple if you purchase a shared website hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge website hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the same exact section of the CP, so you can easily 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 function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
