Use Javascript to increment a text file counter with an onClick event?

I know Javascript is client-side and I need a server-side component to update any file, but I can't find anything that will do what  I need that is not written in .php.  I'd love to use a .php solution but don't have it installed on our server (yet).

What I have is a series of e-mail messages for people to use to send to clients.  The click on the link and the message opens, they add their clients name and send.  I need  a counter or another method that will increment every time one of the links is clicked on to determine how many hits each link is getting.  Ultimately, I'll need 3 counters but if I can get one, I'll be able to get the rest going.

Thanks much in advance.
