An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have created.

All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your PC and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with just a click from the exact same section of the CP.
