An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file provides 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 efficiency of a site, in addition to the web stats your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you choose one of our website hosting plans, you will get in-depth access logs for all your sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You will simply need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, allowing you to save the file to your computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
