Distinct hosts served

Is there a way to get a more accurate “Distinct hosts served” number…because I know if they connect through a proxy…the results could be inflated a bit.


I assume you are talking about the figure shown in analog stats for your domain. If so, I don’t think you can change the way it ‘counts’ distinct hosts, other than changing the stats package you use.

I use TraceWatch on some of my domains, it provides real-time stats, which I find extremely useful. It does however require a line of PHP to be added to any pages that are to be counted. It is also a bit tricky to get working under PHP5.

If you want more detailed logging/stats I would recommend installing Awstats (demo here). Here is an installation guide:
