Stats on a forwarding domain

I have a domain (F.COM) that does nothing more than forward to another domain attached to a full website (W.COM). I would like to get full stats/analytics on the F.COM website, such as source of the clicks, countries, numbers, etc.


I can set up F.COM almost any way necessary to accomplish this. I would probably want to use Google Analytics, but could use any analytics program available.


What should I do?


Thank you.

Use Google Analytics on the f.com main page. Have the forward happen in 1 through 5 seconds. If you expect slower computers, setting the speed to 1 second may have them skip the analytics (because the Javascript didn't load yet before being forwarded).
If you're already satisfied with basic AWstats info, then nothing is needed, except the landing/forwarding page you already use.

Thank you. So I would put two Javascript codes on the page: Google Analytics and the redirection code?
Do I have to worry about people who turn off javascript?
