An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your hosting server may have produced.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you choose one of our cloud hosting solutions, you shall get comprehensive access logs for your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To disable this function, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and whenever you want. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
