Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I am looking out for some website monitoring alerts service which would either send me an email or sms on my mobile if any of my websites are down.
Which is the best service currently or are there any great softwares available which I can install on one of my server which would act as same for my websites?
I looked up two : dnsstuff.com and siteuptime.com
I would recommend very powerful free monitoring service [mon.itor.us...] and a recently launched premium version [monitis.com....] It checks not only http but 11 protocols, shows performance from US and Europe via real time charts, sends email and IM alerts, has many nice features like customizable dashboard, Google, Netvibes, Mac, Yahoo and MSN widgets.
Hope that will help
