I was wondering what everyone uses to monitor their sites' uptime?
I need a service that uses HTTP Content - checks for the presence of a string on my 50+ websites.
For long years, I have used small freeware utilities SiteUp and WebMon. SiteUp is very reliable, but I haven't found a way to copy the settings from PC to PC. So, at each reinstall or PC change, I have to reprogram all my 50+ sites manually. WebMon appears unreliable on Win7.
Almost all online services are at a ridiculous price. Nodeping.com does offer a reasonable service for $10 a month and up to 1000 urls... but somehow I prefer to have that on my machines... just in case the service goes bust or increases the prices...
Any other software you have experience with?
