The Big List of Website Uptime Monitoring Services

edited July 13 in General

Some days ago I had posted about Netumo - for uptime monitoring, then there are of course the LE* favourites- Hetrix Tools and Uptime Robot.

A couple of days ago some random surfing led me to similar sites, and I started writing a post on my blog about the uptime monitoring services. I came across several 'lists' from posts by KeyCDN, and other sites. Posting some of them here.

The below list includes Free, Freemium and paid services. With time, I will update and classify these services into these three categories, similar to the way I had done in my blog post on Webpage Builders.
As always,

  • Suggestions to the list welcome and appreciated.
  • If you have used any of the services in the list other than the "LE* favourites", please mention your feedback about them in the comments.

*Types: Free, Freemium, Premium.
Note - 1. for sake of simplicity, paid-only plans are tagged as premium. This category may be updated at a later time
2. I am not a fan of classifying services based on price alone. But in the LE world, that could be used as a filter or starting point.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I have updated the list, and added the three tools suggested so far.
    Will update periodically particulate the first 10 or 12 entries


    (Entirely optional)
    @AnthonySmith at a later point in time (say a few weeks from now) if the list adds value as a blog post on LESBlog, would be happy to tailor it.

    Thanked by (1)AnthonySmith
  • Nice list, thank you!
    Also, bearmon, by the same folks who run LunaNode.

    [...] free of charge, with up to fifty checks [...]
    For features such as SMS, or for more than fifty checks, you can add credit to your account (each additional check past fifty is billed hourly at $0.1/mo).

  • Been using in the past Uptimedoctor 5 URL for 1min testing

    Using Hetrix Tools Long time

    Nodeping is the best. It never gives false positives since it confirms the downtime from a totally different geographic location and only then sends a notice.

    We have been using them for 6-7 years.

    They are worth every penny.

    Yep, I think ramnode and securedragon are using them as well iirc

    Zilore : It's FREE. and now my primary external monitoring.
    Pro: Zero false positives. Reliable
    Cons: slow javascript heavy UI and graphs. (for once a year when I scan through)

    EDIT:
    Apparently I've been on FREE beta for nearly 2yrs. haha.
    Found on their website:

    Free plan
    Our monitoring service is in the beta-testing stage. All users of the beta version will get a free, time-unlimited subscription featuring all the checks that will become available at the launch of the commercial version.

    Mr Vyas sir, I cannot stop hearing Shaggy ft Rayvon in my head. Thank you for this gift. =)

    Also, I think #4 should be updown.io unless that is a completely different service.

    Thanks for some great feedback.
    Tempted to suggest a tag line to Nodeping folks...

    “Nodeping. The uptime monitor trusted by Webhosts.”

    updown.io

    Fixed. Thanks for flagging kind sir. My typos must be a result of listening to ‘ Summertime ‘

    Hi all,
    On a related note...
    Turns out some guy has compiled a list of 150 monitoring services. And an additional 100 odd that are no longer active or shut down. Makes me wonder if there is a lot of money to be made by offering these services?

    Weird. I actually dreamed about setting one up recently. Might still do so. More of a tech trial though rather than commercial motive

  • vyasvyas OGContent Writer

    In order to further test, I have set up 5 different services. Three existing, two new ones : Ironically one (Netumo) keeps giving me false positives for @Smallweb Singapore. 20 alerts a day! Turned it off today.
