An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you opt for one of our cloud website hosting plans, you will get in-depth access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created inside the web hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it through some log processing software.

A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great convenience.

Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
