An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website 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 example, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. 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, web browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you obtain a website hosting
from us, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our state-of-the-art website hosting platform shall create access logs for each website hosted within a semi-dedicated server
account, as long as this feature is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function at any time by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the same exact section of the CP, so you can save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
