Just begun using this, however I like it so far. It is best only for very simple uptime, and ping knowledge of public websites. Not much else.

  • It is free since 2010 - they dont yet know their business model going fwd, but been free for a while now
  • It collects data down to 5 minute intervals
  • Setting up a new acct is 3 fields done in 30 seconds
  • UI/UX is slick and stupid-easy
  • SMS notification built-in

Compared to: I also compared Pingdom, Port Monitor, New Relic, Zabbix, Splunk The first two had weak free models - 15 days or not frequent enough monitor intervals. The latter three are overly complex for my needs and Zabbix/Splunk have to be installed on a server you own. Splunk did have a cloud version but the signup was complex and I stopped. New Relic had a 15 day trial and their free version (carefully hidden) only allows on website monitor.

What is the name of the tool? I also use a free tool Anturis icon Anturis which is a cloud-based tool with troubleshooting, 5 monitors, 1 min polling time,sms and email alerts as well as phone alerts. I think that this is a nice option for small companies especially.

uptimerobot; I think it allows you unlimited or many monitors vs 5 (that you mentioned) I have now used this successfully for 6 months on a live business website. It works great and flawless. Instant notification of downtimes on half a dozen occasions.

If you are looking for a free option uptimerobot is a good start. I have tried pingdom's free option too. Random location (which leads to confusing latency numbers) as well as a their 5 minute monitoring interval makes uptime robot a better option.

Add the site UptimeControl.net to the article, because only they have a 3-minute site availability check interval on the free plan.

They broke it. Monitors are frequently not working, reporting state 30-40 minutes late, or not at all. I have 2 accounts and 1 account may report correctly while the second doesn't - it's just unusable. Support say: “this is normal”.

Right now, I have a monitor that should be up, but isn’t. Their solution? - Reset the stats and lost 3 years of history because it is "stucked in cache". Disgraceful.

No solution and refund from their team.

UptimeRobot works great EXCEPT it will silently ignore expired TLS certificates and pretend everything is fine. I don't want to complain about a free service but this is very sneaky and bit me hard.

It's fine not to include full certificate monitoring/reminders in the free plan, but when my site is down because of TLS issues, I need to know.

It's perhaps not the sexiest, but it works flawlessly (if you like me can live with 5 minute intervals). I've been using it for years and it has not failed me yet. There's even a mobile app and a dashboard page, but I usually stick with the Slack integration for instant notifications.

I have been using this for a few years. It's very simple, and free. - I have not tried the API, so i can't comment on that.

It allows you to monitor 50 sites for free and gives you a public status page with HTTPS enabled via Let's Encrypt.
