An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is sometimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

You will simply need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this feature, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled independently and at any time. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it with some log processing software.
