An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web statistics that your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple when you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
