The source code of our free counter is written in HTML, Hyper Text Markup Language, and if you are not familiar with HTML code you should pay strict attention to this installation tutorial or ask your webmaster to do this for you as a mistake at this point could cause your webpage to stop working correctly.
Firstly you will need a text editor before you can proceed any further and the simplest editor which can be used can be found on any windows operating system, namely Notepad which can be found under Start/All Programs/Accessories. This text editor can be used to open your HTML webpage on which you wish to install the counter.

Just select the index/default.htm file and right click it and select open/open with and select Notepad to open it with. It should hopefully look something like the example below:
The next step is to get the actual HTML code of the counter which you can access from your free account by logging in and selecting “Get HTML Code” which will then be displayed for you.

Once you have completed the action above all that remains to be done then is to save the index/default.htm file with the new counter code inserted and upload it to the host server. If done correctly you should be able to see your new free counter on your webpage (you may need to refresh the page).
