An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so forth. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each 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, such as the referrer site, is typically provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.

When you opt for one of our shared web hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for all of your sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.
