An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer site, is usually included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy when you get a website hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you will find the access logs too. When you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

You'll be able to disable this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
