An access log is a text file containing a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so forth. All of these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer site, is sometimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you opt for one of our shared hosting packages, you’ll receive in-depth access logs for all your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this feature, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and anytime. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function could be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click will activate the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
