An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of 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 app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. An access log provides 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 OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is typically provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our state-of-the-art hosting platform will generate access logs for every site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we provide with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may stop this feature at any time by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each log in the very same section of the CP, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
