An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains 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 efficiency of a site, independent of the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.

All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge website hosting platform will generate access logs for each Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On.
