An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Once you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section.
