is an open source web scripting / programming language

time someone visits your website or a particular
web page this is logged by our server
and is then summarized on a daily basis so that you
can see how many visitors
come your website, which pages are
most popular and where visitors
few website's reach this limit each package
does have a cap on the amount of traffic it can use on
per month, for example if you have
lots of high resolution
photos or MP3 downloads on
your site you are more likely to
your monthly traffic quota than a
site that just contains
text and web optimised images. The
reason we impose such limits
is to prevent very busy websites

if you use in excess of your bandwidth
will be invoiced for that excess
traffic. For details please see the
FAQ relating to excess traffic.
