Hit Counter

 
Version 3.0 now available with
 
  • periodic hit count history tracking file with % increase/decrease can
    optionally be imported into a spreadsheet for graphing and analysis
  • auto-detection of the server OS (UNIX/Linux or NT/2000) for easier setup
  • monthly reporting period option added
  • higher level of customization of what data is included in e-mailed reports
  • improved file locking for more stable data files


Features added in v2.0
 
  • selective blocking of hit counting and logging of individual IPs or
    entire sub-nets
  • adjustable IP tracking to eliminate "counter bloat" for more accurate counts
  • support for the NT Blat freeware mail program


Bestdam Logger is a must for any serious Website. It compiles hit counts and detailed information about visitors to your Website and automatically e-mails this information to you. It executes "in the background" and is completely invisible to those who visit your site (except for the optional display of the hit counter).

Many people that have Web pages feel that CGI scripts are "over their head". The truth is, if you know basic HTML and know how to use an FTP program like WS_FTP to transfer files, chances are you can be up and logging in about 15 minutes. With so many free CGI scripts available (including Bestdam Logger Lite) you are really short-changing yourself if you are not using the CGI capabilities offered by your ISP or host provider.

For those who know very little, if anything, about using CGI scripts, the links below lead to pages which give you detailed instructions on how to use your CGI capability, and how to download and set up Bestdam Logger Lite.
