Recently I was surfing around the internet looking at who knows what and I came across this free website monitoring tool. It was free so I thought that I’d give it a shot. What it does is check to see if your site is up and running every 5 minutes. If it doesn’t get a response it will check again for the next 3 minutes and then send an alert (if it’s offline).
I tested the monitoring tool with one of my websites and it worked great! I simply took my website offline by adding a XX to the domain name and waited 8 minutes. I setup my email and mobile phone to get alerts. You can also have it alert twitter. After 8 minutes I received the “website down” message. For a free tool I thought it was fantastic so I added a bunch of my other sites. I also setup my all my clients websites. You can add up to 50 URL’s for each account. Add this monitor to your toolbox and check out my resources page to see other useful tools I use.
