Web stats refer to statistics produced by an online statistical program. It allows the webmaster to see accurate information about the people that view and use their site. You can see such information like unique visitors, page views, referrers, etc. instead of just information like hits.
Yes. Each package comes with THREE different web statistics programs, so you have the option of using the one that best suits your needs.
Analog, Awstats and Webalizer.
Analog is a program to measure the usage on your web server. It tells you which pages are most popular, which countries people are visiting from, which sites they tried to follow broken links from, and all sorts of other useful information. Click here for an example of a report produced by Analog.
AWStats is a powerful and feature full tool that generates advanced web, streaming, ftp or mail server statistics, illustrated in a graphical manner. Click here for an example of a report produced by Awstats.
The Webalizer is a fast web server log file analysis program. It produces highly detailed, easily configurable usage reports in HTML format, for viewing with a standard web browser. Click here for an example of a report produced by Webalizer.
A series of one or more page requests or page downloads made by one user at one web site. When a visitor does not request any new information for a specific time, known as the "time-out" , then the next request by the visitor is considered a new visit.
A unique visitor is a visitor that has made at least 1 hit on 1 page of your web site during the current period shown by the report. If this host make several visits during this period, it is counted only once.
The period shown by AWStats reports is by default the current month.
All Web sites are a collection of electronic "pages." Each Web page is a document formatted in HTML that contains text, images or media objects. The "home page" is typically a visitor's first point of entry.
A hit is a single file request in the access log of a web server. A request for an HTML page with three images will result in four hits in the log: one for the HTML file and one for each of the graphic image files. Whilst hits can give a meaningful measure of how much traffic a web server is processing, a better way of understanding accesses to a website is to look at the number of pages accessed (eg. just html files).
Bandwidth is a term used to describe the amount of data that can be uploaded and download from your website per month. It is measured in megabytes or gigabytes and you can choose which hosting plan to suit your needs based on this at xman online.
