Hi everyone
Need some advice, is there a service that monitors your website if it goes down?
Domains.co.za do not offer this and yesterday my site went down, I would never have known but a customer let us know, Domains.co.za do not offer this service, which I think is quite stupid
Wordpress site
Any advice please?
Thanks

50 free monitors with a limitation as to how quickly they poll.

You can also try hetrix tools. I think you can monitor 10 or 15 sites or ips for free. Think they poll every minute.

So if I monitor 50 times in 1 day thats it then I am out, is this correct?
What then happens after the 50?
I think a monitor in their sense would be one url you monitor, ie you have one for your front end, one for your api etc etc

No no, so 50 = 50 unique websites you can monitor


Free version the polling frequency is 5 minutes iirc
