An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which 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 a lot of files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and 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 website, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you obtain a website hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
