An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the very same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
