Frequently Asked Questions
How does the number of visitors differ from the number of hosts?
Hosts are unique IP addresses assigned to PCs of users who visited the site.

Technically speaking, visitors are users' browsers. When a page of your site is viewed, the 24LOG counter plants a special cookie with a unique identifier into the user's browser, which is later transmitted to the counter each time the pages are viewed.

The division into hosts and visitors is necessary because there can be several PCs behind a single IP address, for example at companies using a single gateway firewall for Internet access.

The same is true of users with dialup Internet connections, where one user can have different IP addresses at different times. Meanwhile, several users may be "hiding" behind the same IP address.

This means the visitor count is browser-based, and if a user visits the site using different browsers, he will be counted as different visitors.
