An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etc. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is sometimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.

All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each domain/subdomain.
