How do I understand AWStats within my cPanel web hosting account?

When it comes to managing statistics within your cPanel web hosting account, its important to it as simple as possible. This is why we recommend using the best cPanel statistical software called AWStats.

Using AWStats you will be able to see a visual representation of your web hosting account traffic and its growth. The most important feature within the AWStats has to be the "last update” feature which tells you when the last time was that all your statistics where generated. However, if you don’t want to wait for them to be generated automatically, by your web hosting account, you may simply click the "Update Now” button, which will update your statistics immediately.

You can further customize your reports by viewing a reported period of time and a summary including traffic viewed, and not viewed, indicating the difference between possible human traffic and search bots. There are also reports for the total number of visits, total pages loaded, total hits (accessed files) and unique visitors, which are individual IP addresses. AWStats also includes web hosting information on how much bandwidth your site has used and the top countries for traffic.

If you have any further questions, please get in contact with your cPanel/WHM web hosting support team for further assistance.
