This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you have a more complex website (which I define as a site with more "stuff" that can break, such as Javascript, AJAX, Flash,...) , consider adding real user monitoring (RUM) to the mix. That is transaction monitoring using real web browsers like IE and Firefox.

We use AlertFox. They also have a useful free plan to get started:

Other good options for RUM are Keynote or Gomez, but they are "high end" (read: expensive).

I like Uptime Robot. Lots of notification options (SMS, e-mail, Twitter ...), up to 50 sites/services, and free.
