An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded pictures, 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 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase a cloud web hosting from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
