An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so forth. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The data 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. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You can stop this function at any time by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than 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.
