An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.

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