An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud web hosting account and visit this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with only a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Our leading-edge hosting platform shall create access logs for each and every website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled.

You can deactivate this feature at any time by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log within the very same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
