An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, and so on. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, including the referrer site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
