An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information 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 write reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats which your hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you choose one of our shared web hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.
