An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. 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, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you choose one of our cloud website hosting solutions, you will receive detailed access logs for your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and at any time. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.
