An access log is a text file which contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, including the referrer site, is typically included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you pick one of our cloud web hosting plans, you shall get detailed access logs for all of your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To disable this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and whenever you want. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.
