If your Plesk control panel is anything like mine, then you will find that there are no visitor stats for any of the domains on there, but fear not, the stats are/have been collected (usually by default they're pre-collected by 3 months - well that's what mine were set to).
First of all check that your domain(s) have got webstats enabled. To do this you'll just need to log in to your Plesk control panel, then on the right hand side select your domain from the "My Webspaces" section.
Then select the "Websites & Domains" tab, scroll... [read more]
Automated spam is wild now-a-days on the internet and if you run your own website, you'll know that there's many methods you can use when you encouter spam to deter it.

Well as my own personal deadline for launching the site ticks down to less than 4 days away, I've pretty much done most of the "back-end" of the site. However the main point of this project is to show how I can transform it from 0 visitors when it opens to a certain amount (which I think I placed as 1,000).

Well it seems after being tempted by a promotion on cheap domains, I have kind of - on accident (obviously) - purchased another domain name. So this now gives me yet another project to work on and expand my current mini-empire.
I won't reveal the domain name just yet as I think I will use this as an experiment - along with a normal functioning website. Basically what I want to do is show how I can take a brand new website from 0 visitors a day to 100 a day (or maybe even more, I do need... [read more]
