An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so on. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is typically supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely easy if you acquire a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. As you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them when 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 quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated website hosting platform will create access logs for any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the exact same section of the CP, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
