To add new top-level domains to http-analyze, just install an up-to-date TLD file. Since release of http-analyze 2.4, some country domains have been changed and the new generic top-level-domains .asia, .tel and .travel have been added. See our List of Top-Level-Domains for more information.


The developement of http-analyze started in 1996 as a statistics tool for the former website, which was built by RENT-A-GURU™. Since other partners and customers also requested a server statistics tool, the first public version of http-analyze numbered 1.9 appeared in early 1997 and has been replaced since then by 2.5 today. http-analyze reached a high quality standard and reliable long-term operation on servers with just one website as well as on huge website farms.

Latest version

The latest available version is http-analyze 2.4pl4 (statically linked with libGD 2.0.33, libPNG 1.2.8 and zlib 1.2.3).
