An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have produced.

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 right away.
