Domain validation

Clicky validates all incoming traffic against the domain and any mirrors you have registered. The main purpose of this is so that if someone copies your tracking code onto their site for whatever reason, that won't impact your stats. Most other services do not do this, so you would see other sites' traffic in your reporting if someone copied your code.

This is one of the most common issues for new customers, either they mistype their domain or they enter in one domain but then decide to track a different one later on, using the same code. So, make sure you have entered this information correctly.

We will automatically account for sub-domains as long as your main domain is registered as either the root domain, with or without the "www". If however you are tracking more than one domain under a single site ID, you will need to enter the additional domain names in your site preferences.
