Website Outage Checker—Track and Monitor Outages

The SolarWinds® Pingdom® website outage checker is a vital component in a web developer’s tool kit, and it’s designed to help ensure your website is up and running 24/7.

Uptime monitoring

Website Outage Monitoring

Monitoring uptime manually is time- and resource-intensive, and it may not take into consideration localized issues. Automated website outage checkers like Pingdom can ping your web server and test availability from multiple server locations. Pingdom checks website status as often as once every 60 seconds and sends an alert if it fails to receive a response. It uses a network of more than 100 test servers located in data centers around the world to ensure all visitors can access your website regardless of location. An uptime check from many locations still counts as a single check against your subscription plan.

Integrate Apps

Instant Notifications

Pingdom monitors your website for outages and transaction failures and alerts you when something unexpected happens. You’ll get an outage alert using your preferred channel, whether it’s email, SMS, push notifications, or popular collaboration tools such as Slack, VictorOps, Opsgenie, and PagerDuty. You can choose whether you want to be notified immediately or delay sending an alert by up to 60 minutes.
