An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your Internet 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 website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. All of these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is typically included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.

You will be able to look at comprehensive access logs for any Internet site that you host in a semi-dedicated server account created on our innovative hosting platform. Our cutting-edge Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to enable the function for each and every domain or subdomain in the account independently, so that you can get logs just for the websites that you need. After you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will find a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you've added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of each one of them. Initiating or disabling the generation of access logs is as elementary as pressing that button and the change will take effect at once. You could save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the same section. The latter will be available always, even after you disable the feature for a specific domain address or subdomain.
