An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of 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 many files inside the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so on. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is a single click on the On button that you'll see there. The function can be activated independently for any website no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your CP.
