An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you buy a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you shall find the access logs as well. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be activated via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for every single domain or subdomain that you have in your account. When you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you may then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
