An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer site, is usually included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside 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, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger 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 that you will see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

You'll be able to stop this function whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log inside the same exact section of the CP, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click.
