An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you opt for one of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll get detailed access logs for all of your websites. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you've added or created in the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs straight away. To stop this feature, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and anytime. You can find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
