We recommend Google Analytics for tracking website activity.
Google Analytics is a free service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about the visitors / traffic to a website. Google Analytics will work for all pages of your website including your Online Store and the Online Design Tool pages. This information can help you improve your website’s return on investment (ROI).

How much traffic can I have?
We do not have a limit to the number of website visitors to your site. However, there is a physical limit our network can handle.
There is no way to determine the maximum number of visitors your site can sustain. Each site is different and the amount of traffic you can handle will depend on the resources each visitor is using.
What about huge and unexpected spikes in traffic?
If there is an unusually large spike in activity that takes resources from others on the server, your site will be constrained. This is a very unlikely scenario.
But I thought it was unlimited?
Just because you can have an unlimited amount of something does not mean it is physically possible to consume an infinite amount. Unlimited does not mean infinite.
It is not possible to use an infinite amount of the server since there are other limits in place, like how much CPU you can use at one time, how many processes you can have open at one time, how many emails you can send out in an hour, etc. Certain rules are in place to make sure one person does not use the entire server on a shared account environment, preventing other customers from using the server.
Based on today’s standards and Webtools’ architecture, any limitation is very unlikely. However, if resources are being consumed via FTP or the web at an extra ordinary rate, VCG reserves the right to restrict your online traffic to 10 gigabytes per month. Should this problem arise, you will be contacted by Customer Support to help resolve any issues.
