1 ] I have lost my user ID and/or password[ open ][ close ]

You can recover a lost password or user ID (or both) from this form

2 ] How much does Web-Stat cost ? What are the differences between account types ?[ open ][ close ]

We offer four types of accounts : 'basic' at $5.00 per month, 'plus' at $7.50 per month, 'premium' at $9.50 per month and 'free trial'

  • A basic account will monitor your incoming traffic (number of visitors, referrers, keywords, geographical location, etc.) but does not follow your visitors inside your site to record their behavior, so reports like 'page views' and 'click-paths' are not available.

  • The plus account is similar to the 'basic' account, but it includes the Web-Stat Uptime Monitoring, which attempts to connect to your site every 15 or 30 minutes to verify that it is up and running normally (if it is not it alerts you via email and cell phone text messages). Also, the Uptime Monitoring measures the time it takes to establish a connection to your site and presents that information in additional reports (average connect time per day, per month, per day of the week and per hour, average uptime per day, per month, per day of the week and per hour).

  • The premium account includes all the above stats. It will also follow your visitors inside your site and record their behavior (click-paths, page views, time spent on each page, conversions, bounce rate).

    A premium account will also give you a connection counter, which allows you to display the number of people connected to your site in real time. For instance we are using it here to show you that right now visitors are connected to the Web-Stat site.

  • The free trial is equivalent to a 'premium' account and it will work for 30 days. It can be made permanent (without losing the existing stats) simply by 'registering' it: use the link on the menu bar or click here. If you do not register your free trial within 30 days, it will expire and be deleted automatically

For more on these different programs, please see this page which summarizes the differences between account types

3 ] How many sites can I monitor with one account ?[ open ][ close ]

One Web-Stat account is designed to monitor the traffic on one web site. If you need to monitor several sites, then you should create several accounts with us. Note that quantity discounts are available if you own more than four acounts.

Once you have created/registered your first account, you can create additional ones from the Settings Panel (click on [ add an account ] in the first section)

Yes, if you have several accounts with us and pay for them with the same credit card you will get quantity discounts of up to 50% : see details here.

Note that you can create your accounts one at a time : when we charge you each month we will find out how many accounts are being paid for with the same card and automatically calculate the appropriate discount.

Note that for your security your credit card number and ID code are not stored online, so they will not appear on the update form.

6 ] How can I cancel my account ?[ open ][ close ]

If your account is a free trial, you do not need to cancel it : it will expire automatically after 30 days and there is nothing for you to do.

If you have a permanent (paying) account with us and wish to discontinue our service you can do so at any time, no questions asked : simply contact us with your user ID and password requesting that we cancel your account. We will proceed and send you a confirmation within 24 hours.
