AWStats and Webalizer

We offer two Web Statistic/Web Analytics options with all of our plans. AWStats is setup by default but can easily be changed.

1) AWStats

This log analyzer shows you all possible information your log contains, in few graphical web pages. It uses a partial information file to be able to process large log files, often and quickly.
