An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so on. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy when you get a web hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. When you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this function anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
