An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.

Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You could save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link you'll see within the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
