An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer website, is typically provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
