An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may 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 pages, images, etc. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to each domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your PC and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you no longer need one, you can stop it with only a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You'll still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge hosting platform will create access logs for every single Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log within the same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
