An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.

When you choose one of our hosting solutions, you shall get in-depth access logs for all of your Internet sites.

You will simply have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately.
