    Default How do you monitor your websits uptime?

    Websiteís availability is a critical part of our business, but we canít stare at the monitor all the time to check for possible downtimes. I started using https://uptimerobot.com but i am still not satisfied (and also do not really know for what i should look out tbh).

    So why not asking the comunity here for advice

    - Which tools do you use and - even more important - how do you use them?
    - Which stats are the most important ones for you?
    - When do you undertake action? Are there certain patterns, maximum response times etc?

    Looking forward to learn more about this subject from you guys!

    Besides downtimes of course also general server issues - eg slow response time - are quite interesting to know. What do you in terms of this consider to be a "good host"?

    Like you I use uptimerobot to monitor uptime, I have email alerts turned on and can't really fault it all.

    For website speed I use gtmetrix and implement what they recommend.

    Hi! We use the basic tariff for https://www.host-tracker.com. To monitor the uptime of the server. There is also a free option to use.

    Check the availability of the site and download speed from around the world you can link - http://ping-admin.ru/free_test/ This site is in Russian, but I have not seen analogues in English, use the built-in translator in chrome. If you know analogues - please throw off the link.

    We use Jetpack's Downtime monitoring module. It's free and it does a pretty good job, sends you an email whenever your site goes offline.

    I used to use Pingdom but in 2017 they removed their free plan for uptime monitoring so I switched to Jetpack.

    To monitor general server issues you can also use Google Analytics. It requires a little more advanced knowledge of GA, it's capable of alerting you via email about slow response time, increased bounce rate, pages timing out, or even JS errors. You can find some options for this in GA property settings / Admin / Custom Alerts (in the View section).

    I've setup (free) email alerts at uptimerobot.com.
    In my experience, it's enough to setup one alert (for the most important domain) per hosting account.
