    It is very easy to do if you are using PHP, I have been doing this for my online resume for years.

    Rename your file from something like "file.html" to "file.php", and then put in the following code:

    <?php$fp = fopen("hits", "a");

    fwrite($fp, date("y/m/d H:i") . " " . $REMOTE_ADDR . "\n");



    This will make a file called "hits", and whenever anyone opens this file it will record the date and their IP address in the file.

    You can if your web host provider provides web stats software. You might be able to find some free utilities on the internet. Do a search on website statistics freeware.
