An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
