An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and 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. Additional information, like the referrer site, is usually provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud hosting solutions, you’ll receive in-depth access logs for your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and at any time. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.
