An access log is a text file containing 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 visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer site, is typically supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.

When you opt for one of our shared web hosting solutions, you will get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see an extensive list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you will have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
