An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is usually provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely simple when you buy a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have within your account. Once you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click shall trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you may then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
