An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is sometimes included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you choose one of our hosting packages, you'll get in-depth access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created in the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log created by our system, so that you can 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 Servers

If you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access after you sign in. All it takes for our system to start generating logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
