An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, like the referrer site, is typically supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you pick one of our cloud hosting packages, you'll get comprehensive access logs for all of your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed independently and at any time. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.

All it takes for our system to start creating logs is a click on the On button that you can see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you'll find a full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you could then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be deactivated by simply changing the On option to Off in the Logs section of your Control Panel.
