You can not view your site all the day to see it when it is down by your hosting/server issue. Do you guys here using any free or paid services like Pingdom or something else to monitor your server uptime/downtime?
Just curious what tools do you use to get instant updates on the status of your server? How do you deal with this situation?

Hello arindamb,

We personally use StatusCake which can monitor almost anything, you can monitor: HTTP/HTTPS, TCP, ICMP, DNS, SMTP and PUSH. They have both Free and Paid plans and i have been using them for a few years now, very handy.

Here is there website: https://www.statuscake.com

Regards,
Adam

Hey,

Another option would be https://hetrixtools.com/; we currently utilize their Blacklist & Uptime monitoring tools... Pretty good so far; first decent company I found that is capable of watching all of our subnets.

Wow, I didn't know about them and they seem pretty good. The free account lets you monitor up to 5 websites, where many just allow 1 or 2 on free plans.

Thanks for the information.

You could use Nagios, or PRTG Network Monitor, both can be configured to send you emails, if your server is down

First of all your site won't act right or won't load at all, try googling for better tools, don't go for the one that only tracks traffic.

we are using pingdom for tracking all the server activities. Somehow the downtimes can be measure by means of HTTPS socket check and give you an instant notification to your mail.

Simple way to Check if Your Website is Down
  1. Visit Website Planet.
  2. Fill in your website address (URL) on the field and press the Check button.
  3. Website Planet will show whether your website is online or not.

There are free services for this, as well as some paid options. Just sign up for one and most will send you email or text notifications when your site is down.

I have a WordPress site right now where I just set up JetPack and it tells me when my site is down and how long it was down for. Usually, it's only down for a brief moment. I do find the notifications to be useful though.
