An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which 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 prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy if you buy a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right.
