An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are one of them. Once you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that will be available next to each domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you'll see a download link together with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your 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 could stop it with simply a mouse click from the same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking the Download link.
