Depending on your hosting plan, your account may include different tools to track and report your website statistics:

Information about the operation of your site is critical for decision-making. To obtain this information, you need to analyze statistical data that is written to log files in your home directory on the server:

  • Error log - stores data about errors generated by the server (e.g. Page Not Found error) or by your CGI scripts;
  • Transfer log - stores combined data about every visit to your site, including:
    - Remote host IP (i.e. visitor's IP);
    - Time of request (i.e. when visitor requested the page);
    - First line of request;
    - Error generated by request, if any;
    - Size of message sent in response to the request;
    - Referrer (i.e. from which page visitor was directed);
    - Agent ID (i.e. type of browser or another agent and related information, such as user's OS, etc.) ;
  • Referrer log - stores the list of URLs from which visitors are referred to your site; and
  • Agent log - stores data about agents used to enter the site -- such as browsers or any other Internet-based software -- and all related data.

To enable or disable writing log files:

  • Click the Web Options icon on your control panel home page
  • Select the Domain name you need
  • On the page that shows, scroll down to the Settings section and click the ON/OFF icon next to the log files.

To view the log files records:

  1. Click the Web Options icon on your control panel home page.
  2. Choose the necessary domain
  3. Scroll down to Log files and click the View icon next to it.
  4. List of log files shows.
  5. Click the necessary file and all its records will show.
    Note: Entering end in the Line Number field will show a list of records from the tail of a logfile.

The statistics data in the log files is difficult to read. Web analyzers will read log files to produce visual reports in HTML format for viewing through a browser.

To enable these analyzers and view statistics reports for your sites:

  1. Click the Stats icon to go to the Statistics page.
  2. Enable/disable the statistics package you want.
  3. Click the Apply link on the right of this domain.
  4. Click the View icon to see your statistics report.
