TR provides two Domain Reports. Whats a domain? TR gets this information from the names of your visitors. Their names are called hostnames, and in order for them to be used in this report, they must be in a non-numeric format, called DNS. For instance, a visitor might be visiting from a computer assigned the name of www.widgets.co.au. TR can report on both a domains primary piece (.au), as well as its secondary piece (widgets.co.au).
Though you wouldnt know it by its name, this report shows you which countries your visitors are from.
The stats displayed in this report include the number of visitors from each primary domain and how long a typical visitor was at your site. The stats also describe the file transfers from your web site and your servers ability to keep up with the demands placed on it. See the Numeric Reports section for a description of each of these statistics.
What are primary domains? Primaries are the suffix portion of a domain name. For instance, in the domain of:
The red part (.au) is the primary domain. So, whats so special about a primary domain? By convention, this part of a domain is often given special meaning. It may be used to describe which country the domain lives in. Or, common to US-based domains, it may tell you whether the visitor is from a commercial, educational or organizational web site.
Similar to the Primary Domain report, this report provides an analysis of secondary domains.
Secondary domains are the domains minus the prefix portion. For instance, in the domain of:
The red part (widgets.co.au) is the secondary domain.
