An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so on. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you buy a cloud web hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You may save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be activated individually for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you could then see it manually or use some software on your laptop or computer. The log generation may be stopped by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
