Your requirements do not list transaction monitoring, but I think that is important nowadays and narrows down your choice considerably. So if you also want to test if your site really works (aka "web application transaction monitoring") have a look at Alert*Fox*, Alert*Site* or Webmetrics. The later has good reporting but is very expensive. AlertFox has a useful free plan.

For basic pinging, AreMySitesUp is worth a look - http://aremysitesup.com/

Not sure about services that log uptime etc

There are many services which do this another being - http://www.siteuptime.com/ - I think for the features you require its going to cost a little bit.

Some time ago I learned to set up and run nagios. I would recommend putting the time in and setting it up. It really is a valuable tool for alerting you to network and host problems. You can run it remotely on a server for ~$30 a month per server on a server contracted with your favorite hosting service.

yes, I know that is a great tool, but I need simple interface, so every manager can use it –  John Aug 12 '10 at 9:11
