An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, in addition to the web statistics your hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you choose one of our cloud hosting plans, you will receive detailed access logs for your sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domain names and subdomains which you have added or created in the hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, which is found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To disable this feature, you'll need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed independently and at any time. You can find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.

Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with a click and you may then see it manually or use some software on your personal computer.
