Domain Name Lookup


Determines how much information is retrieved about each client that accesses the server. Also see access log file path.


No information about the host is retrieved.
Only the host's IP address is retrieved
The host's IP address and host name are retrieved. This requires more network traffic per request. If access control will be used with host or domain names, this is the minimum recommended setting.

Note that the host name that is returned may not be correct (e.g. the client may be accessing the server from behind a firewall). This may cause unexpected entries in the access log or make it impossible to allow or deny specific hosts.

This is the same as Normal.
