An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you acquire a website hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
