An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you get a cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can conveniently enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
