In a domain environment, you would configure your router to log internet activities:

This is as free as you can get since it's your router.

my router is Cisco 3925 and Sophos XG, I don't think we can track individuals' activities like you said
Quick Google search found this:

https://community.sophos.com/products/xg-firewall/f/logging-and-reporting/104729/custom-web-surfing-report-by-user-in-xg-firewall

It would appear that the feature you are looking for may already be included in your XG box.

You could look at Squid. Another option would be to pay the money to take advantage of the logging capability of your existing equipment.
