An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "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, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple if you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

After you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you could then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
