An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etc. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you pick one of our cloud website hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created within the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you'll need to follow the same exact 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 produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to activate or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be triggered separately for any website regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
