An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be extremely simple when you purchase a shared web hosting from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too.

If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
