An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all 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 app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so forth. These files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is sometimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you choose one of our shared web hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for your websites. When 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 domain names and subdomains which you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this function, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.
