Down for Everyone or Just Me is a very simple service which basically help you check if a particular website is down for everyone or just you!
If you are using free wi-fi on a public network, often it blocks some websites form opening. One such free wi-fi network near my home blocks all blogspot.com domain blogs and on top of it, they do not show any custom error message when I request a blogspot.com blog!
I remember for the first time, when I connected to it and saw all blogspot.com blogs down. For a moment, I thought I should post about it as many people think blogspot never goes down (and they are right as well). But then I wanted to make sure, if its unlucky me or overloaded Google! A simple service like this can help a lot in many situation.
The URL’s to result page have bookmarkable structure. Like you can bookmark this to check if Devils Workshop is down for everyone or just you.
Now apart from this manual checking, their sponsor (or parent company) Uptime Party offers server monitoring service for webmasters and professionals.
On registration, you can setup to monitor 1 server for free. For more than 1, they charge you accordingly. As most of blogger run only 1 main blog, free package is sufficient for most of us.
You can configure email notification on per server basis, for events like web downtime, email downtime, ftp downtime, etc.
I signed up for free account and configured email notification for Devils Workshop web downtime. I use Google Apps for emails.
