Using Google Analytics for the statistics of our website

All the hosting services (except the redirection and parking service) allows the visualization of the statistics of the visitors with "webalizer", to access to them simply add /stats/ at the end of the url in your browser. You will find more information in our manual: Manual to understand the statistics generated by Webalizer.

This statistics are very simple and don't allows you to see a huge quantity of information of your visitors (bounce rate, time on site, ...), something that maybe more experimented users will requiere, because it can help to improve some aspects of the web.

In this cases we recommend to use external statistics systems, the most popular is Google Analytics, which is completely free and allows the visualization of a huge important information.

Insert Google Analytics code on our website is fairly easy, simply open the files .html or .php (depending on how you created the web)and paste in the source code of each file that Google has indicated in the previous step, you should find the </ head> and paste the code above it.

If you use a system of content generation such as Wordpress, you must go to the folder of the theme you use and edit the file head.php.
