I think the host must support fetching data using some client, if not, then it it alsmost impossible. – Web-E Dec 11 '12 at 8:08

Yes. Enable ssh access for your web server (you can do this through the host gator control panel). I am going to assume you are using apache and you would run tail -f /var/log/access.log. Doing this will follow the file so to speak and instantly print to the shell when you have a new visitor to your web server.

Access.log has all the user agent, resource access, request type information, etc... that I see in the host gator screenshot above.

EDIT: This answer assumes you have a VPS or dedicated server. I haven't used and unable to find any information for shared hosting.

You'll have to clarify what you mean. I don't quite understand. – Fred Thomsen Jan 8 '13 at 3:39

You can access outside the cpanel using Awstats, to configuration Awstats on ubuntu you can see
