An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
When you buy a hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or disable the generation of access logs separately for each site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
