Enter the domain name of the website you want to track
Once you have an account, you can enter the domain name of the website you want to track. Umlauts and other special characters (including numbers, dots and slashes) are supported so you can add international domain names too. Please, remove
www from the URL, just keep the
For example, if your site is
https://www.yourdomain.com then the part to enter in the "Domain" field is
If you'd like to track a specific subfolder only, you can also add a subfolder (
After you add your domain, we will provide you with the tracking snippet that you need to insert into your site to start counting your stats.
You don't necessarily need to install our snippet on the same domain as the domain you have added to your Plausible account. Think of the domain field in Plausible more like a site ID rather than an exact match. This allows you more flexibility in your setup all depending on your situation.
Do you want to track a subdomain?
If you would like to track a subdomain such as
blog.yourdomain.com then please include the subdomain. Plausible Analytics essentially sees different subdomains as different sites.
For example, if your subdomain is
https://blog.yourdomain.com then the part to enter in the "Domain" field is
Prefer to track visitors across your domain and subdomain?
You can add the main domain to your Plausible account and use the same tracking snippet on both the main domain name and its subdomains. This keeps the visitor session active between the main site and the subdomains. See the full details on this approach here.
Select your reporting timezone
You need to select your reporting timezone too. This sets the day boundary of your reports regardless of where your traffic is coming from.
For instance, if you select "(GMT+01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin…" then the beginning and the end of each day of your reporting is calculated based on the time in Amsterdam, even if your visitors come from London or New York.
The best practice is to set the timezone that reflects the location of your audience or if the audience is very broad and spread across the world to set the timezone of your location.
