What happens to my website log files?

This article applies to Dedicated Servers.

This article explains the purpose of a log file on a hosting account and how they are used.

Each time your site is accessed, the web server logs information regarding the hit to a file. Data stored includes the date and time, the files downloaded, the referring site and information about the user’s computer, such as the web browser used.

We analyse the log file for your site each day to produce your graphical usage statistics.
