An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single website that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
