An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information 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 write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your hosting server may have generated.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. Once you sign in to your cloud hosting account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains that you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link together with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you no longer require one, you'll be able to stop it with just a click from the very same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
