An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer website, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your website hosting server.

When you choose one of our shared hosting solutions, you shall get thorough access logs for all your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account.

As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click will enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort.

Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
