An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and 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 Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you choose one of our website hosting packages, you’ll receive in-depth access logs for all of your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and whenever you want. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function could be enabled via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find 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 a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
