An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, and so forth. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you purchase a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

All it takes for our system to start creating logs is one click on the On button that you'll see there. The feature can be activated individually for any website regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
