An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etcetera. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "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, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you opt for one of our web hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for all your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled individually and at any time. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it with some log processing software.
