is there anything provided to look at stats? something such as awstats, if not, than is it possible for me to install it?
DreamHost provides Analog stats for all domains and subdomains by default. Simply browse to http://yourdomainname.com/stats/ and you will be prompted for your username and password. You can configure various options for the statistics in the Control Panel.
It is possible to install Awstats (I believe the DreamHost Wiki has instructions somewhere), but it requires a little bit of SSH experience. You can also vote for Awstats to be made the default statistics package in the Suggestions area of the Control Panel (as I have done).
to set up the user name and password to access your stats page, go to DH panel --> Status --> Site Statistics
