An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have created.

When you go there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right.

All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
