An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You can activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
