An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a shared website hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
