An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of 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 visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etcetera. These files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple when you get a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start creating 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 need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated hosting platform shall create access logs for each site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this function whenever you want by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
