Monitor website performance and usage statistics through cPanel.
To monitor website performance and usage statistics through cPanel, you can follow these steps:
Log in to your cPanel account. Make sure you have access to a cPanel-powered server.
Once logged in, locate the "Metrics" or "Statistics" section in the cPanel dashboard. The exact placement may vary depending on your cPanel theme or version.
Within the "Metrics" or "Statistics" section, you will find various tools and options for monitoring website performance and usage statistics. The most commonly used tools are "Awstats" and "Webalizer."
To view website statistics using Awstats, click on the "Awstats" or "Awstats" option. This will open the Awstats interface, which provides detailed statistics about your website's traffic, visitors, and more.
In the Awstats interface, you can select the domain or subdomain for which you want to view the statistics. It will generate a report with information such as the number of visits, page views, unique visitors, referrers, search engine keywords, and more.
To view website statistics using Webalizer, click on the "Webalizer" or "Webalizer" option. This will open the Webalizer interface, which also provides detailed statistics about your website's traffic and usage.
In the Webalizer interface, you can select the domain or subdomain for which you want to view the statistics. It will generate a report with information such as the number of hits, files, pages, visits, and more.
Depending on your cPanel configuration, you may also have access to other website statistics tools, such as "Analog Stats," "Metrics Editor," or "Raw Access Logs." These tools offer additional insights and customization options for monitoring website performance and usage.
In addition to the built-in statistics tools, cPanel often integrates with external services for advanced website analytics. Look for options like "Google Analytics" or "Visitor Analytics" in the cPanel interface. These options allow you to connect your website to third-party analytics services for more comprehensive data analysis.
It's worth noting that website statistics tools provide valuable insights into your website's performance and user behavior. Use these statistics to identify trends, track visitor engagement, and make informed decisions about optimizing your website.
If you encounter any difficulties or have questions about interpreting or accessing website statistics in cPanel, consult your hosting provider's documentation or contact their support for further assistance. They can provide guidance specific to your cPanel version and hosting configuration.
