An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so forth. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our state-of-the-art hosting platform shall generate access logs for every website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could stop this function at any time by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same section of the CP, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
