    I need to add a Hit Counter to one of our websites.

    Is there an app installed on the shared windows JH servers that would do this easily? If not, does anyone have recommendations?

    A few options are available:

    1. Put up a link to webalizer (yourdomain.com/webalizer) - somewhat reliable
    2. Use a 3rd-party javascript counter - cheezy, if the service goes out of business, you start over; easily falsified
    3. Use an inline javascript counter - reliable, but really easily falsified
    4. Use Google analytics - Won't display on homepage, but pretty robust
    5. Hand-roll a server side script: asp example | php example

    Keep in mind that any javascript-based service will only count those visitors with javascript enabled for the domain where the service originates.

    Hope this helps!
