An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, etc. These files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows 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, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer site, is usually provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

If you purchase a hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain name 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 enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.

Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click will enable the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
