An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that 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 many files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etcetera. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. 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, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is typically provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.

Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely easy if you acquire a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated website hosting platform shall create access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we provide with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can stop this function whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
