An access log is a text file which contains 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 if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. 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, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is typically provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you get a hosting
from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Each domain name
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced website hosting platform will generate access logs for every single Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can deactivate this feature at any time by following the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
