An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web stats which your server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple when you get a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as quick and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the same exact section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
