I am looking for simple software that allows me to monitor popular webhosters in the following months to see performance.

I have used smokeping in the past for this purpose, but it seems that smokeping is horribly outdated and pretty hard to configure.

I don't see anything "horribly outdated" and "pretty hard to configure." about smokeping compared to other packages. In fact if you only want to measure latency (so you don't need a full network monitoring system like Opennms or Nagios) I always recommend smokeping.
