An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer 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 can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy when you buy a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
