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 if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, etc. These files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is sometimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud website hosting plans, you shall get in-depth access logs for your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and anytime. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.

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 enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be permitted from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
