An access log is a text file containing a thorough 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 app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etcetera. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is sometimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you opt for one of our cloud web hosting packages, you shall get detailed access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced web hosting platform shall generate access logs for each site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log in the same section of the Control Panel, so you may 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 option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
