An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site 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 website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied too. 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

When you choose one of our shared web hosting plans, you will get thorough access logs for all your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, allowing you to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll have the option to enable or disable the generation of access logs with just several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will find this function in the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is one click on the On button that you can see there. The function can be triggered independently for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you'll find the full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation may be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
