An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. These files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
When you acquire a cloud web hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any 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 trigger or deactivate 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 that you shall see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall create access logs for every single website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this function anytime by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
