An access log includes a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.

You'll only have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you will need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it through some log processing software.
