An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. Such a log includes raw info about the way the server has handled requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if someone is trying to access the website or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information inside the error log offers the IP address of the website visitor, what error message displayed and the reason for the web server to display it, the full path to the file that caused the error and the exact time of the event. Having this information will allow you to determine if any part of your Internet site has an issue, that you can then clear up. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you will supercharge the site for optimum performance.

The button is available for each and every domain name that you have hosted and every subdomain that you have set up, so you can get an in depth log for every single one of them individually, in order to be able to examine the websites for problems easier. A second click on the exact same button shall turn off the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available within the very same section.
