An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors faced whilst they were browsing your website. This is the raw information that the server has generated and it can help you discover potential issues with your site and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s efficiency and to raise the users’ full satisfaction. You will find a variety of things inside an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file which the site visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are various reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed adequately by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.

When you log in, you have to go to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you want to keep an eye on. The button is available for each domain name
you have hosted and each subdomain that you have created, so you can get a detailed log for every single one of them separately, as a way to be able to check out the sites for problems a lot easier. A second click on the very same button will turn off the function, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available in the very same section.
