An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a shared web hosting
from us, you will be able to choose if access logs should be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same 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.

Once you sign in, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will find a list of all the domain addresses and subdomains that you have added or created and an On/Off button on the right side of all of them. Initiating or deactivating the generation of access logs is as basic as clicking on that button and the change shall take effect right away. You could save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the same section. The latter shall be available always, even after you deactivate the feature for a given domain address or subdomain.
