An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so forth. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you acquire a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you'll find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain you have inside your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
