Our web hosting packages offer AWStats, a dashboard that displays traffic to websites on your hosting platform.

Note: AWStats tracks all traffic to your hosting platorm. If you host multiple sites on one account, AWStats does not provide reporting on a site-by-site basis, the reporting is cumulative. You may wish to use a third-party tracking software such as Google Analytics, which is free, and involves adding a small amount of code to your website. For more information on using Google Analtyics, including step-by-step guides on incorporating it within WordPress, please see the articles in the Related Articles section.
