An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your Internet site 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 may find many files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

If you choose one of our shared website hosting plans, you will receive in-depth access logs for all of your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and anytime. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.

When you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, which you can then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
