An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Each and every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, in addition to the web stats that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

When you get a website hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
