An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you acquire a website hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
