I think my website is hacked..The counter was about 250 yesterday.Nowit is 7880. LOL.
tilmen you have to look at logs, also if you set permissions to web root folder at 777 you have a problem there..The only thing you can do is to check your security, if nothing goes wrong then there is no problem.But also... what`s your web address? We wonder to see the main page :D

Look at the logs. You will be able to tell where each user is coming from (or what proxy they are using) and which pages they are viewing. You should be able to get an idea of whether or not it is normal traffic.
I tried to look at the log files of my website.But my website is a freeware one and my service provider (I thank them a lot for my website) replied that they don't provide the feature "Websites Raw Logs" for free account.That's OK.There's no problem with the site now anyway.
Can you please tell how will I do that?
It's perfectly possible that someone's spider, or browser, glitched and requested the page that many times. Unless you are counting "unique user" accesses (which few of these counters bother to do), the exact number is pretty meaningless.Or the counter may have glitched.Or someone may have been trying to break into your website and (probably) failing.Unless you have some other evidence of tampering, just ignore it.
Yes,there is no evidence of tampering.I ignore it.
You've installed a "hack-counter"? What count equates to danger-level then? L
No,its a normal web counter.The problem is that it increased 7000 in one day.My reason for thinking that my website is hacked is this.
Why - what sort of hacking increases counter-loads? Maybe someone copied the counter URL and the counts are being notched-up on another page... L
You may be right.
Have you checked your counter again today? Is it....OVER 9000?!??!
It seems to go on normally.It is 7888. :)
Um... and how does that = hacked??? It could just mean that you are getting more traffic... although yes, you probably were hacked... ;)
Yes, but 7000 people looked at the mainpage in one day? I don't think so.I'll try wearetheworld's idea.
That would be a good idea. However, your counter might have an error.
Shut it down, immediately. Delete all of your files, cancel your domain name registration, and terminate your contract with your hosting service.
I have a website.Its got a normal web counter in the main page.The web counter was showing 250.The next day it was 7880.So what?7500 people visited my web site in one day?I don't think so.My answer is that my web page is hacked.Or, there can be some error while I upload pages,etc.
Just push the self destruct button. Disassemble.
