An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 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 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you obtain a web hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You could save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
