IncrediBill Good Plan!
now to think of it, you wouldn't even need servers in different parts of the world, just access a proxy servers that send request from different part of the world.
proxy servers in US, China, UK, and maybe a few location in the US and Uk.
I have a ad server on a godaddy shared daddy hosting account and it can easily handle well over 25,000,000 impressions a month, so a couple million http request per month wouldn't be nothing.
24 ping a day per site
1.2 million request per day at about 100 mb of data in whole.
you would send at minimum a few thousands emails a day.
on a shoe string budget you could do this for less then $100 per month.
might even be a good business model if you monetized with ads, or affiliate products. Send out a monthly newletter with featured products, services, training course, etc.
Think about it You're building a list of concerned webmaster with valuable web properties "must be valuable if they want it monitored".
also in each failure email send them an affiliate offer to try a new more reliable host LMAO.
