An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All 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 instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etcetera. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More info, like the referrer website, is sometimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you get a cloud hosting
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains
hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated website hosting platform will create access logs for every site 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 supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
