An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Each and every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, aside from the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you opt for one of our hosting solutions, you will get thorough access logs for all your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To stop this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed separately and at any time. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.
