cPanel reseller tutorials – the AwStats tool part 2
Today, we will continue with our explanation of the Awstats section in the cPanel Control Panel. Since it provides a lot of information about your website’s traffic, I have divided the whole article into 4 sections for easier reading. The second main Awstats section is the Who section. There can be seen several subsections with more information about the countries the visitors who have visited the website come from and their domains. Information about the number of Pages, Hits, as well as Bandwidth, is presented through a bar graph. The Hosts subsection contains info about the last visits and the unresolved IP addresses (you might be able to identify an ISP by a given IP address). The Authenticated users subsection contains the list of the people who have officially logged onto your site with usernames and passwords. It also includes records of their unsuccessful attempts to log onto your site. The Robots/Spiders visitors subsection is the part where you can find information about traffic generated by robots, worms, or replies with special HTTP status codes, which is omitted in the Summary section. Visits duration is a very interesting section because there you can obtain information about how long the visits to your website have lasted for. Note that you will not be able to see the visitors who have visited your website for between 0 and 30 seconds. In the File type section you can see a list of file types and how many hits these files are getting. Percentage is included as well. For statistics about how many times each individual page on your website is viewed and its size, see the Pages-URL (Top 25) section. There also can be seen information which shows how many people have accessed your site, what page and even folder they’ve visited. Of course, you can also see from which of your website’s pages the visitors exit your site. From the Operating Systems (Top 10) stats section you can see information about what operating systems the computers that visit your website are using. Information about what browsers your website’s visitors are using can be found in the Browsers (Top 10) section. The first column there is called Grabber and indicates visitors’ browsers used for copying locally the entire site.
