An access log is a text file which contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. All these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you purchase a shared website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing 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 fast and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than several clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature could be permitted through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever 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 each one. One click will trigger the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
