An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file provides 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 functionality of a website, besides the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.

Our in-house built Hepsia CP features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your personal computer and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you no longer require one, you could stop it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
