An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared hosting
from our company, you'll be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You may activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain
you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Enabling or deactivating the generation of access logs is as easy as clicking on this button and the change will take effect immediately. You will be able to save the logs in .txt format by clicking on the Download link in the exact same section.
