An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all 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 website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, and so forth. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently 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, along with the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, like the referrer website, is usually included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you opt for one of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created in the web hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To disable this function, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
