An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

When you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and navigate to this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect instantaneously, so if you no longer need one, you can stop it with simply a mouse click from the very same section of the CP. You will still be able to access the already developed content by simply clicking the Download link.
