An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
