An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so forth. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" as well. An access log provides 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 Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is oftentimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you buy a hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
