An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your web server.

You will only 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'll 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 can find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it via some log processing software.
