An access log is a text file which contains an extensive 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 if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will have the option to enable or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button which you will see there. The function can be activated independently for any website regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be disabled by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
