An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website 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 site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your website works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is typically provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.

When you get a shared hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
