Pingdom is the industry standard for website and server uptime monitoring. We check your site as often as every minute, automatically, and alert you the moment an incident occurs.
Pingdom makes it easy for you to monitor the uptime and performance of your website or server. Website monitoring is just as important as antivirus or a backup service.
When an incident occurs and your website goes down, you want to know before your visitors do. Pingdom's Uptime Monitoring checks the availability of your site or server as often as every minute from over 60 probe servers across the globe. We always double-check issues from another location to filter out false alerts.
So you got alerted and you notified your customers of the issues, now what? We pride ourselves in having a service that is easy to use, so whenever we detect an issue we run additional tests to further help you out. In our control panel you can run a traceroute, dig in to see server response codes and the output from a web server.
Incidents don't always happen during office hours, but when something breaks – because it will – Pingdom will immediately alert you in a way that suits you. You can be alerted via email, SMS, or a notification to your Android or iOS device. With very critical services, you want to get alerted immediately. You can also set it to after 1 minute, 2 minutes, etc. And you can select to resend the alerts at an interval up till 4 times after the initial alert.
