You can have sitemeter.com, Internetsheer.com and clickstats.com services..
Also check your hosting account and ask your provider if it have any
preinstalled stats analysing tool. Internet Sheer is a good tool to check
your site's uptime. It sends you alerts if server has any downtime.

If it is Cpanel (linux)  or Helm (windows) it should have Awstats, Webalizer
or any other tool. Now a days most of the hosts are providing it free of
cost with their hosting accounts.

thanks and best regards

> Host's Control Panel
> [2] The Web site in question may be hosted by a host that provides stats
> part of the current hosting plan. Some hosts have what is called a Control
> Panel, where the host can provide additional services such as site stats.
> To see if the site's host has a Control Panel access, try the following:
> Enter "/cpanel" after the ".com" of the Web site in question.  For
> www.sitename.com/cpanel
> If the Control Panel exists, you should be prompted for a user name and
> password.

> Analog
> Awstats
> Webalizer
> Latest Visitors
> [3] Google Analytics (as previously mentioned)
> Analytics uses Urchin, which is a pretty popular pay-for stat tracker
> Google acquired the service and offered it up for free.  That info is
> thorough.  There have been reports that page load times sporadically
> increase after installing the Analytics code on your Web site.  I have
> this happen before, but it is very rare.
> I'd suggest you check to see if you have cpanel on the site's host, and
> out what you already have, if anything, before exploring another options.
> Good luck,
