An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page 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 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data 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 prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Website Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly easy when you get a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. Once you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the very same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.

All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any Internet site no matter if it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find a detailed list of all the hosts in that section.
