An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so on. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud web hosting plans, you will get in-depth access logs for your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so that you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When 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 require them. The function may be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for every single domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click will enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
