An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you opt for one of our shared hosting packages, you will receive comprehensive access logs for all your Internet sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created inside the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.

After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. One click shall enable the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great comfort.

Even when the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
