An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a site, besides the web stats your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

When you opt for one of our web hosting packages, you'll get detailed access logs for all of your Internet sites. As soon as 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 which you have added or created inside the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
