An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so when you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you could need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
