An access log is a text file containing a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you choose one of our website hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created within the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed independently and anytime. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be activated through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each domain name or subdomain that you have inside your account. When you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
