Site uptime is very important. It’s a highly significant factor to check in dealing with web hosting companies—their ability to deliver at least a score close to a perfect one hundred.
Who would want to have his website down almost every second yet pay an ample amount? Nobody right?
Since I have had a bitter web hosting experience, I think I’m a better source for tips about things related to web hosting particularly in keeping an eye on your web hosting provider if they are really keeping what they’ve promised.
Without further a do, I would like you to know that you can use a tiny piece of software that will alert you on your desktop once your blog or website becomes unreachable.
SiteUp does the job of making sure you are alerted every time your site is down. This application runs on your system tray and checks your site depending on the monitoring options that you have set.
Alerts are in the form of a pop-up warning message, a balloon hint or through flashing the icon on the tray.
SiteUp is free unlike other website uptime checkers. Among the other information it provides include displaying a message when the site goes back online, a log file when the site become available which is something you can show to your host as a proof, it can be set to auto-start at Windows start-up and check for active Internet connection.
With SiteUp, you can be informed on how your web host is performing—real time. How about you? Do know any free software that does the same? How do you know if your blog/website is down?
