An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage 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 OS, the 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 called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you might need such a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.

All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
