An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
When you choose one of our shared web hosting plans, you shall get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created within the web hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge web hosting platform will generate access logs for any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could stop this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to view the data that has already been generated.
