Making Website track visitors

HI, Im doing a website for somebody, and im new to it as well. What im really interested is thath i want to know how many people actually go on the website.

I mean unique visitors more likely and the old visitors as well . I dont want to have 1k views just because somebody pressed the F5 key to refresh.

Do you know how could i track the website visitors? without coding it ?

If you know what i mean : p

With the security , well, i do the best i can , and i look throw articles as well.

I created a WordPress website before and was able to view statistics (how many unique visitors, return visitors, etc.) using Google Analytics. You attach your website to a Google account, then you are able to view its statistics. Perhaps it will work for what you want.
