An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly easy when you acquire a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain or subdomain that you have inside your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click will enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
