An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website 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 just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so on. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

If you pick one of our shared website hosting plans, you'll get comprehensive access logs for all of your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and at any time. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
