Awstats Explained, what does it all mean?
When reading your web statistics in AWStats you may see a few unfamiliar words and terms.
This guide will explain what they mean.
The first things you will see are;
Number of Visits
These can be a bit confusing so here is a brief explanation.
<B>Unique Visitors</B> - These are the total number of visits by a unique IP address. This can
be a bit misleading because dial-up visitors get a new IP each time they log on so you can have
the same person visit different times and give a unique hit.
<B>Number of Visits</B>
How do I block an IP address using Cpanel?
If there is an IP address you want to block from your website, you can do so inside Cpanel. Here
are the steps:
1. Log into your Cpanel account.
2. Under "Site Management", go to <B>Ip Deny Manager</B>.
3. Under "Add an IP Deny:" enter in the IP address you wish to block.
4. Click "Add".
You're all set! Now to remove the IP banning, all you need to do is remove the string it created in
your .htaccess file or select it from the drop down menu on the <B>Ip Deny Manager</B> page.
The IP address you added to the banlist will not be able to access your website ever again!

provide for easy recovery in the event of a problem.
