An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web stats that your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get a cloud website hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should 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. Every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.

You'll be able to disable this feature whenever you want by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
