An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etc. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.

If you pick one of our cloud hosting
solutions, you shall get detailed access logs for all your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains
and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once.

One click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity.

Even when the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
