An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your site. This sort of a log includes raw information on the way the web server has dealt with requests in different situations. An error message may appear if, for example, a link leads to a site or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The data within the error log features the IP of the site visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the server to show it, the full path to the file that generated the error and the specific time of the event. Having this info will permit you to learn if any part of your site has a problem, which you can then deal with. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for maximum performance.

The button is available for every domain name which you have hosted and every subdomain which you have set up, so you can get a comprehensive log for every single one of them individually, so that you can be able to check the websites for problems simplier and easier.
