An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of 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 OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform shall generate access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this function anytime by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
