An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and 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 Internet site, is typically provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you obtain a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after 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 leading-edge web hosting platform shall create access logs for each site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we provide with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the same section of the CP, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
