An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you order a shared website hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
