Monitor Website Uptime and Downtime – 3 Best Services

Are you thinking that is your website down? Or want to hire a free guard that will monitor website uptime and will notify you when it is down so you can take care of your visitors. Off course everyone wants it.

So today I am going to in-list three Sites to Monitor Website Uptime Totally 100% Free even without a credit card. These are

  • StatusCake
  • UptimeRobot
  • SiteUptime

Site uptime monitoring is also needed for a good user experience. So let us first read which is best of above tools and how to use them.

#1 StatusCake (Recommended)

Statuscake Monitor Site Uptime
StatusCake Monitor Site Uptime

This is the site I love to use. It is on the top of the list and is recommended by me. StatusCake is a simple, efficient tool to check your site uptime. In the free plan, they check every five mins to see whether your site is up or down and if it is down they send alerts on your email. The thing I love in UptimeRobot is its interval of checking which is 5 Min, and no site is offering such for free. Also, you can add Unlimited monitors that are just awesome. So here is how to use this service. And one minute I forgot to tell you can receive SMS alerts on Your Mobile using this service only.

To use StatusCake, Go to Free Signup Page and fill create an account.

Now you need to create a Contact group to receive downtime alerts. For this go to Create Group and create one. Enter your details and phone number (in format like +923351234567) For more you can see below image

After contact group creation in the right sidebar click on Tests and then click on New Test. After this fill information regarding your website. For more information and best options see below image (Note if you need to Receive Text Messages then You need to select your above created Contact group in contact group option. And also you need some points that you can earn free here)

#2 UptimeRobot
