					Website Statistics with Cpanel


If you own one or more websites, it is vitally important to know how many
people are visiting your site and where these visitors originate from.
Analyzing website statistics should become a regular habit for every
webmaster who wishes to improve website traffic over time. You'll be able
to test and track the popularity of your updated site content and even
see how visitors find your site in the search engines.

There are many web statistics programs on the market, each one unique in
price and features, but did you know that some of the best website
statistic programs already come free with most web hosting plans?

If you have a hosting account for your website that includes cpanel, then
you probably have a whole bunch of web statistic programs built in.
Cpanel is by far the most popular control panel for web hosting accounts
today. It is extremely easy to learn and use for regular website
administration.

There are usually 3 different types of statistics you will find inside
cpanel. These are known as Analog, Webalizer and Awstats.

Webalizer is a statistic program that shows you in a graph form how many
visitors have visited your site month by month. This type of statistics
is very basic and only takes a quick glance to receive your web site
information. If you want more detailed information you will probably
need to check out the other two statistic programs.

Analog and Awstats each offer different presentation styles. All the
essential visitor information you probably wish to see is listed on
Analog, but most people have difficulty finding it as it is primarily
text based and requires close attention.

Awstats on the other hand, is usually the favorite web site statistic
program on cpanel. Not only does it give you plenty of visitor
information, from number of hits per day and month, it also tells you
where they originate from, how long visitors stayed at your site, the
country from which they are viewing your site, what browser they are
using and much more. Basic colored graphs and simple to read layout make
it a quick and easy task to find the information that you are looking
for.

So if you have a website and would like to know more about your visitors
check out your cpanel statistic programs inside your website hosting
account. They can be extremely helpful in analyzing your site and
drawing more traffic to it.
