An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you choose one of our shared hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains which you have 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 at once. To stop this function, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced hosting platform shall create access logs for every Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you want 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 change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log in the same section of the CP, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
