PHost - Statistics
For the curious, this page contains a few statistics about downloads from the phost.de site. It is regenerated about monthly from the web server log.
The following charts cover the time between 01/Aug/2023 and 31/Aug/2023. Only complete downloads (HTTP status code 200) have been counted. No attempt has been made to filter out robots (it seems that the old version pages are mostly accessed by robots).
Note: Non-CSS browsers should now also see bargraphs. Experience welcome.
Online documentation accesses
Counts each access to a page of the respective on-line documentation set.
Downloads by version
Counts each access to an item (program/documentation download, index page) belonging to the respective PHost version.
Downloads by platform
Counts each download of PHost for the specified platform.
Every request to phost.de generates one log file entry, listing the IP address, time, requested page, browser type, and referring page.
I use this information to generate statistics like these, to get a rough impression about the demands of people using this service. I also use it to find problems like dead links.
Other than through the information pieces listed above, phost.de has no user tracking technology like cookies or session Ids. If you filter out browser type and/or referrer information, this will not have any negative effect. There is no way phost.de could find out really sensitive information like your email address or name.
I will never disclose the full logfiles to anyone else (other than the ISP running the server of course); I will only publish summarized, anonymized reports like this one.
