UptimeSpy Re-Launches Free Website Monitoring Service
December 7, 2012 by FindMyHost News
Web Hosting Services – A media representative for the extremely popular UptimeSpy website, a free website monitoring service, today announced the launch of a newly redesigned website. In addition, the company is now offering a new paid monitoring service which includes extra features along with the free option.
Webmasters now have several choices in the way they monitor their site’s online performance and downtime notification which will help them make critical web hosting decisions in the future. The service enables webmasters to monitor their websites and web hosting servers online and remotely which is something not many of the paid monitoring services provide.
UptimeSpy is quickly approaching its fifth year of providing website monitoring services to webmasters throughout the world and the company’s executive leadership team is extremely excited about the new website and the extra services which are available to their clients. Chris Henning, the developer of the UptimeSpy website and one of the principals at the company said, “We have developed a monitoring service that offers world-class features and no usage limits for our users.”
“By integrating UptimeSpy’s monitoring network with a real-time host metrics portal, we are able to serve both our users and the hosting community as a whole, all free of charge” said Chris. Website alerts are a critical component of any website monitoring service and it’s the area in which UptimeSpy.com excels and beats the completion.
The company’s free website monitoring features include:
- World geographic monitoring nodes
- Individual node Ping time sensitivity settings
- Geographical route alerts
- Monitor an unlimited number of resources
- Distributed monitoring
- Monitoring period – every 1/5/15/30/60 minutes
- TCP monitoring
- Head/POST/GET HTTP-methods support
UptimeSpy routinely gathers uptime reliability information for web hosting providers located in every part of the world so their reach is global. However, clients may focus on certain geographical locations so they can easily determine problem areas and resolve issues quickly. Chris said, “By gathering this data and making it available to the public for free, we assist the public in finding the most reliable placement of their web host.”
The company is able to offer its services for free because it is sponsored by several hosting companies which provide free node monitoring. The paid version of the service allows members to receive unlimited SMS notifications and unlimited email notifications in the event there are downtime issues with their websites.
Launched in 2008, UptimeSpy provides the industry’s first free, comprehensive worldwide geographic monitoring service, enabling webmasters to see real-time uptime and performance results from nodes located around the world. With no usage limits and an intuitive user interface, UptimeSpy provides a vital service to webmasters and web hosting providers.
