An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. 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, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy if you purchase a cloud hosting from us.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
