Hmm. The whois details are blocked and the default page on that site returns a 404 error (at least via telnet - I didn't feel like pointing an actual browser at it). Seems odd!

I have ghostery, so no ads (Its a work PC)
Work laptop has ublocker, I can see thats actually blocking 168logger

 

I guess its just some tracking in the adverts . (?)

Don't worry. Now that I'm back in front of my laptop I checked. It's legit, not served by ads and is part of our scripts tracking ad blocking for reporting purposes.
