    Check logs if you run a program like awstats.

    where is the site hosted? Logs are generated by the webserver (usually IIS or Apache) and you need access to those files for awstats or urchin to work.

    .

    Seriously, it's basically no money, and it is full blown host. You won't have these problems, just drop a couple lattes from your week and you're set ;)

    get a real site, then you can get the IP and drop an htaccess to redirect them to goatse or whatever.
