An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
When you obtain a cloud website hosting from us, you shall be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every website that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the exact same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
