An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may 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 can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very easy if you purchase a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. As soon as you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
