An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so forth. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our state-of-the-art hosting platform shall generate access logs for each Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is activated.

You can stop this feature whenever you want by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
