Hey guys!

I made a simple site with html and I want to track the number of downloads of a file hosted in my server.
Example
Code:
http://www.example.com/file.zip

I want to know the total number of dowbloads of that particular file.
I have used anchor tags to refer it.

Thanks in advance.

How about link shortens? Number of clicks = Number of downloads? Bitly, goo.gl can show you number of clicks.

Shorturls, especially for BH niches might be blocked anytime, so I wouldn't suggest you to use it. Better do this in another way: if you want to stick to html (maybe your hosting doesnt support php), create a page and add Google Analytics script to it. Then add <script>location.href='download-link';</script>. And link your visitors to the page you created as for download link. The google analytics will count the visitors (also will show where they are coming from, what countries and more..) and all visitors will be immediately redirected to download file. They will not even notice it.

There's also the Google Analytics Events, which would make it even more simple. With it you could track (count) clicks.
