An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so on. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "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 information, including the referrer website, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you opt for one of our website hosting solutions, you will get thorough access logs for your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and whenever you want. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced web hosting platform shall create access logs for each site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can stop this feature anytime by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
