Is there a way to check past traffic from forwarded domains?

Example:
  • Main site is ABC.com
  • I have ABC.net and ABC.org forwarded to ABC.com
Is there a way to see what traffic has hit the .net/.org forwarded domains?

I registered some URLs for one of my sites & have had them forwarded for the past year. They're up for renewal & I want to see if they've served any purpose.

I've seen guides on ways to setup Google Analytics/etc - but I didn't do that a year ago.

Is there any way for me to pull this data? Maybe some way to tell in Google Analytics?

Do you have domain forwarding turned on at your register or are you doing it by other means like .htaccess? I figure that would matter.

here is an example of how referrals look on google analytics, i can even break them down to what page they came from, what browser they are using and more information like age, gender and other sites they are likely to visit.

of course this is just "referrals" other types are separate...

It's at the registrar.

I've looked at referrals in Google Analytics and don't see any mention of the domains at all... I'm just not sure if that means nobody is going to them or something else.

I'm not aware of any way of doing that in Google Analytics unless you've previously added parameters to your URLs.
