An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you acquire a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated 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 disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
