An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently 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, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, like the referrer website, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple when you buy a cloud website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a few clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each domain name or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will activate the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your personal computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
