    There are some companies that offer "external" hit counters but they usually have a price (like an advertisement or 10 on your page).

    find out if your server supports any type of language that will allow a counter.
    you can also check out sites like Bravenet.com, they will offer you a free counter through there service, no server side support needed.

    What do you want a hit counter for anyway? They're a pretty lame thing (IMO) to see on a web page and if you want activity statistics for a web page you should be looking at the server log files.

    All the major web servers have the ability to log all requests made to the server. Then you can use analysis software like WebTrends (an expensive but good one) to analyze those log files for a multitude of interesting information.

    The key is getting access to those log files, you'll need to talk to your host about getting those logs.

    also, alot of times the host you use will just allow you to view your web stats for your account.
    depending on what type of service i guess.
