This is a common question:

"Can we track pages outside our main web site?"

The answer is yes.. The tracking code can be placed in any web page, regardless of where it is hosted. As long as the 'domain' name set in the WhosOn tracking code points to your monitored site it will be tracked.

For example, we use 'ShareIT' as our payment processor. ShareIT provide our actual checkout page. The checkout page is not hosted by us. ShareIT provide a template where we can insert our own HTML. We inserted the WhosOn tracking code and now we can monitor visitors through the checkout process even though this part isnt on our actual site.

Some third party sites dont allow you to embed Javascript.. but dont worry because WhosOn also provides a 'none-javascript' method of tracking. In the WhosOn Client - Site Properties - Tracking Code tab - click the None-Javascript tracking button. This will create an <IMG> tag which you can insert. Most sites allow images to be added.
