An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage 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 every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, besides the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You could save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
