An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided 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 server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

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

All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button you'll see there. The feature can be activated separately for any website regardless if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer.
