An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, 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 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
When you opt for one of our shared web hosting packages, you will get comprehensive access logs for your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To disable this feature, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
