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 AlertFox, AlertSite or Webmetrics. The later has good reporting but is very expensive. AlertFox has a useful free plan.


http://www.pingdom.com/ is my favorite of these that exist. Free for 1 website as well.

  • also has an iPhone app which is great for checking on the go. – MikeJ Aug 19 '10 at 12:20
  • This is not free now. The pricing starts from 12EUR/mo. You may give statuscake.com a try – Konstantin Pavlov Feb 13 '17 at 11:26

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
