An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, such as 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 stats created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you pick one of our cloud web hosting plans, you’ll receive in-depth access logs for all of your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer 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 our company, it will not take more than several clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain you have within your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your personal computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
