Unique Visitors is the count of how many different IP addresses (belonging to different computers) visited the site.

Bandwidth is the amount of data that is transferred between your site and the client computers.

Pages indicate each page that a user visits, but is different than unique visitors. Example - If I visited your website and clicked on 15 pages, then I am 1 unique visitor with 15 Page Views.

Hope that helps!

Unique visitors would be different individuals. The same person hitting your pages several times on different days would only count as one individual.

I would guess that Pages would be the number of different pages accessed per each individual and summed for the whole group. So the same page may be counted several times but only if it was seen by a different person.

Bandwidth - guessing again, but presumably the amount of page content that was viewed. A total would maybe make more sense here if there is a cost involved for the service.

Visitors - number of people who visited your site, including people on dialup using shared ip but different sessions
Unique Visitors - Visits from unique IP - eleiminates duplicate visitors from the same IP
Pages - Number of pages viewed by the visitors
bandwidth - the total bandwidth utilised In & Out on the server for than many X number visitors viewing Y number of pages.
