An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer site, is typically provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple if you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating 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 may stop this feature whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the same exact section of the CP, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
