An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, besides the web stats that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you purchase a cloud web hosting from our company, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily trigger or disable 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 within the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.
