An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full 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 provides 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. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you get a cloud website hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the exact same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Activating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as elementary as clicking on this button and the change shall take effect instantaneously. You can save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link situated in the same section. The latter will be available all of the time, even after you deactivate the function for a specific domain name or subdomain.
