Is there a service that can monitor my web server and annoy me with phone calls (and or email) when it detects that its unresponsive to HTTP requests?

Have a look at this serverfault question: "Can anyone recommend a website monitoring service?" Or, do it yourself: "What is the best way to monitor a production server?" – Dirk Paessler Dec 11 '09 at 16:04

Pingdom has been working pretty well for me for a month. I only have a few sites in it, but it's noticed every time I've restarted the apache server :)

Microsoft System Center or you can setup Opmanager. Both work well.

I have been using ServerGuard24 for > 3 years and am very happy. They send emails and sms and are quite cheap.

You can also use to monitor your website. They send email, sms, rss feed alert, gadget, twitter direct message alerts and more features
