An access log is a text file which contains 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 if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button which you can see there.
