How to view website statistics in cPanel using AWStats

  • Monthly history

  • Hours
  • Countries (Top 25)
  • Hosts (Top 25)
  • Authenticated users (Top 10)

  • Visits duration
  • Files type
  • Pages-URL (Top 25)
  • Operating Systems (Top 10)
  • Browsers (Top 10)
  • Connect to site from
  • Search Key phrases (Top 10)

  • HTTP Error codes

To access this information, please do the following:

  1. Login to your control panel.

  3. Click the view icon next to the domain name of interest.

You are now looking at the web site statistics for your domain.

How to keep your own page visits from being counted:

You can specify an IP address which you do not want logged in AWStats. This will allow you to view your site and make updates, without affecting the daily statistics.

  1. Visit What Is My IP and copy the red IP address. This is your connecting IP.
  2. Login to your control panel
  3. In the Files section, click File Manager  .
  4. Navigate above public_html and enter the tmp folder.
  5. Enter the awstats folder.
  6. Find the file named awstats.yourdomain.com.conf and choose to Edit.
  7. Scroll half way down to the line starting with "SkipHosts" and add your connecting IP inside the quotes, as so:
    SkipHosts="123.45.67.89"
  8. Save the changes, and you are finished.
