An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etcetera. All these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes 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. More info, including the referrer site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you choose one of our website hosting packages, you'll get in-depth access logs for your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created within the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and at any time. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated web hosting platform will generate access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like 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 can deactivate this function whenever you want by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log within the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
