The Host Summary reveals the company or Internet Service Provider from which visitors came to your site. For example, if your main business is with other businesses (Business-to-Business), use this report to identify the companies on which you should focus your marketing and sales efforts.
For each host used by a visitor to your site, the Host Summary displays the host, the last visit, the total time online (the total time the host spent on your Web site), and the number of views and visits (with the percentage of total views and visits).
If you have entered a host lookup script to link hosts with data in other databases, you can click a host to get more information.
If you want to view the additional information about the host directly in the NetTracker report (instead of having to click the host to look it up), you can use a NetTracker Data Conduit instead of a lookup URL.
If you have not entered a host lookup scripts or used a data conduit, you can click the host to have NetTracker look up domain name information through the appropriate domain registration database. To display a View Breakdown for a host, click the number of views. To display a Visit Breakdown, click the number of visits.
Note If listings in this summary show IP numbers (100.100.100.100) rather than resolved host names (someserver.somedomain.com), you are not currently resolving host names. Most Internet Web servers resolve host names. In other words, they look up the host names for the corresponding IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. Sometimes Web servers are configured not to perform this function. To fix this problem, you can either set your Web server to resolve host names for you or you can select the Resolve host names check box in NetTracker.
