An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The info 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, web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is typically included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you get a hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.

As soon as you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click will trigger the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
