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 that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, besides the web stats your server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you pick one of our shared hosting plans, you'll get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created within the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To stop this function, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and at any time. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
