An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, 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 that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you obtain a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately 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 inside the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.
