If you own a website you might have shared you own issues with having your website down. For a blogger this can also mean precious loss of traffic and subsequently a loss of revenue. Wasitup.com is one such website that monitors your website and sends you an email if it goes down.
- Wasitup.com conducts a HTTP HEAD request and checks if the statud code is 200 OK. This means it checks if the page you have submitted is up and running.
- If you specify a text within the url, it checks if the text is present or not in the HTTP body.
- Once your website is down you receive an email. Your website is checked every 5 minutes. 🙂
- You can monitor upto 10 websites per account.
I think this would be quite useful for someone who is working part time as a blogger or might be away on vacation for a few days. Obviously at such times a email notification of the downtime would be greatly beneficial.
Let me know what do you think about Wasitup.com through your comments. 🙂
