Control Panels??? Can i use a different one then what's provided
lets say i sign up for hosting from some provider, and they give me an control panel type deal to maintain my site. you know, just simple things like assign emails, check site status.. etc..
my question is.. what if you don't like the particular control panel that they use. can you use your own? how hard would it be to change it?
basically i'm looking for something that gives me REALLY REALLY detailed logs and stats of my site. Detailed as in stats on everything, page hits, hits per time/day/hour/etc.. and a detailed tracking of where visitors came from.. etc..
Is it possible to run my own server stats thing? anyone know anything about this stuff?
