Managing Your Counter

By default your counter will start at 0.  If you have a business, or some other need, you may want to adjust this number to something more appropriate.  To edit your counter, please preform the following steps:

1. On your computer, press Start -> Run
2. Type in "explorer.exe ftp://domain.com" (without the quotes)

Note: For domain.com, you will need to enter the name and extension of your website.

3. Press Ok
4. When prompted, enter your username and password for your hosting account

5. Press Log On
6. This will open a FTP window, double-click the httpdocs folder

Note: If you do not see the httpdocs folder, double-click the wwwroot folder.

7. Right-click on the counter file, select Copy

Note: The counter file will have a .ctr extension at the end of the file name of the targeted page.  For example, if you installed the counter on the Index page, the counter file would be called Index.htm.ctr.
