An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your Internet site. This type of a log features raw information on the way the hosting server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a website or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if someone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The data within the error log includes the IP address of the visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file which induced the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will help you figure out if any part of your website has an issue, which you can then clear up. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the site for best performance.

As you log in, you will need to go to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you want to keep track of. The button is available for every domain name that you have hosted and each subdomain that you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for every single one of them independently, as a way to be able to check the sites for problems easier. A second click on the same button will deactivate the function, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available inside the exact same section. If needed, you can use software on your personal computer to process the raw hosting server data for statistical purposes.
