An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple when you buy a website hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. When you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

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 activated individually for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you will find a full list of all the hosts in that section.
