Daily Statistics

This section shows a graph and table detailing the information for the daily usage of your website for the month selected.

Hourly Statistics

This section shows a graph and table detailing the information for the hourly usage of the site for the month. It reports the Hits, Files, Pages, and Kbytes in both Average Per Hour and Total.

URLs

This section shows the top 30 URLs with web requests, ordered from most visited to least visited. The table includes how many hits the URL received, the percentage out of the total hits for the website, the size of the request responses, the percentage out of total size requests, and the URL of the request.

Entry

This section shows the top 10 entry pages, out of total entry pages, for the website. Entry pages are the first requested URL for a visitor. This can help you determine which specific website pages are generating the most traffic.

Exit

This section shows the top 10 exit pages, out of total exit pages, for the website. Exit pages are the last requested page for a visitor's recorded session of browsing through your website. This can help you determine which specific website pages are either causing users to leave or are the usual last pages they view.
The table includes how many hits the URL received, the percentage out of the total hits for the websites, how many visits the URL received, the percentage out of total visits for the website, and the URL of the entry page.

Sites

This section shows the top 30 out of all total sites that have visited your website. While the wording can be confusing, in this context, a "site" means a unique machine, a computer, or even a mobile device. It details the number of hits, files, size of the request, visits, and Web Server hostname of the visiting site.

Referrers

This section shows the top referrers to your website pages. Referrers are the addresses or URL that have redirected users to your website or caused the Browser to request a file from hosting files. Direct Request means the site was requested by someone who typed your URL in the navigation bar directly.

Agents

This section provides information on the most common user agents that accessed your website. A User Agent is a technical term for a browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Opera or Mozilla Firefox.

Countries

This section shows the top level domain of the requesting website or Web Server that is visiting your website. The top-level domain is the extension at the end of a domain name, such as.COM, .US, or.ORG. Unresolved/Unknown means that the site making requests on your server is not using a service that resolves to a top-level domain and instead leaves their IP address.
