An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Every single file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web stats your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

If you obtain a web hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can conveniently activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
