An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you opt for one of our cloud hosting plans, you shall get detailed access logs for all your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll simply need to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you'll have to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and whenever you want. You can find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it with some log processing software.
