An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is sometimes provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you opt for one of our hosting plans, you'll get in-depth access logs for all your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and anytime. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.
