Organizations use SSL certificates to secure sensitive data, earn customers’ trust, and boost site rankings. SSL certificate expiration may lead to insecure connections and error messages potentially impacting end-user experience and increasing bounce rates. Pingdom offers SSL certificate monitoring for your websites, so you can renew your certificates before they expire.
SolarWinds® Pingdom® provides certificate monitoring or SSL/TLS monitoring with its uptime monitoring feature. Users can simply select HTTPS when setting up an uptime HTTP check, to monitor their websites’ certificates. Once the check is enabled, Pingdom automatically monitors certificate errors when monitoring a secure site. It’ll notify you instantly about certificate errors and their expiry.
Pingdom allows you to set up alerts to trigger as short as a day or as far out as a month before the certificate expiration date, it’s completely customizable based on how many days you want advance notice. With its advanced alerting system, you can receive instant notifications when your site is unavailable to your end users. You can get alerts for other events via email, push notification, or an SMS. Alerts can also be integrated with your preferred communication tools such as Slack, Hipchat, PagerDuty, and more. Teams can also choose the frequency of receiving alerts, for instance, four times after an initial alert, based on the severity of the outages.
It’s important for businesses to ensure their website is available in all business-critical regions, and they’re notified if it’s impacted due to any localized issues. Downtime in any critical region can negatively impact revenue and end-user experience. Pingdom uptime monitoring enables development teams to monitor the website’s availability and performance from over 100+ locations worldwide.
Pingdom provides a root-cause analysis report when downtime is detected. The root-cause analysis can help uncover the cause of downtime by giving you additional information including Resolve IP and GET content. Development teams can also run a traceroute to examine server response codes and identify the output from a web server.
You can monitor and share your website’s uptime and overall performance with your colleagues and customers via public status pages. The status pages are customizable and easy to configure. Users can display relevant checks, the current status of the website, and historical data to show improved performance.
