An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all 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 application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, etcetera. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you get a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the very same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will find this feature in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be enabled individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your Control Panel.
