Cool examples of public status pages (and thank you for all the kind words)

PingdomTwo weeks ago we released the beta of our new public report pages (also known as status pages), and we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received from our users.

Not only did people say a lot of nice things…

Very, very cool

The new @pingdom public reports are quite sexy

Webmasters everywhere started using the new public reports right away… (The reports are available to all Pingdom users.)

We now have a public page over at Pingdom, so if you think our site is ever down, check here first

Great examples of custom designs

Quite a few of our users have taken advantage of the possibility to create their own themes for the public report page, matching the design with their own brand.

Here are a few (partial) screenshots of cool examples we’ve come across:

There are plenty of other examples out there, but we hope these gave you an idea of what’s possible.

Thank you for all the feedback, keep it coming!

We’ve received a ton of great feedback so far, and we really appreciate hearing back from you. You’re helping us shape these reports, making them even better and more useful for you, our users. We’ve already made improvements based on your suggestions.

You can still make your voice heard. Please email beta at pingdom dot com with any feedback you may have (put “public reports” in the subject line). And to those of you who have already shared your thoughts and ideas with us, a big thank you!


  1. Hi,
    This is a question on your post:
    “The money made by Microsoft, Apple and Google, 1985 until today
    Posted in Main on April 9th, 2010 by Pingdom”

    Do the profits include salaries given to employees?
    Where does this profit go?


    1. @James Cocker: Good suggestion. It really should be in there by default. We’ll fix that in the near future (we’ve put it down as a future improvement).

  2. @Pingdom. Great, thanks! Although probably best as a toggleable option, and some companies may not like to make it so easy for users to view their total monthly downtime!

    1. @James Cocker: It is a toggable option. 🙂 Public report page / public status pages are not activated by default, and you can also select which checks you want to include in it.

  3. @Pingdom I mean having the Monthly Total Downtime column on the Public Reports optional. It’s nice to be able to give clients current/recent uptime. And it’s one thing them being able to view the length of each individual downtime, but I can see how some companies would not want to blatantly display their monthly total downtime in hours. It just makes it too real. Uptime % doesn’t look as bad.
