What info can websites track by?

Just wondering what info a regular website can obtain and track me by when I go to it? I'm trying to access a site using proxies and ccleaner but the site seems to pick up I've already been there and made an account there because it blocks areas right after I join again. either the proxies have been used there already (which is possible) or the site tracks something else?

  1. Sights track by IP address and cookies.
    What do your mean it block areas right after you join. like log in?
  2. Every time you visit a site you have a cookie stored in your computer by a user's web browser. A cookie can be used for authentication, storing site preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or anything else that can be accomplished through storing text data. You are using a ccleaner which erase your cookies so every time you go back to that site you are tag as a new visitor.
