An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
