An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you get a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs as well. When you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start creating an access log for each of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
