An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file features 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 overall performance of a website, independent of the web statistics which your server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you opt for one of our website hosting packages, you will receive detailed access logs for all your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.
