Today we continue our series with a tool that can help you monitor your business website uptime!

Statuscake – website monitoring unleashed for free

Statuscake allows you to monitor website uptime, essentially is your website available to users? Your site could be down for a number of reasons including

  • Your website hosting is down
  • Coding issues
  • Its been hacked
  • Load issues – too many people visiting!

This not only creates bad experiences for your users but it also could be losing you money (conversions/sales). Usually these services come at a cost (Pingdom, one of the more well known uptime monitoring providers, and one Knect have used in the past, costs $12.95 a month)  though Statuscake has a free forever package with adequate features.

At Knect we agree with Statuscake when they say

Whether you write a blog, run a small online business or are a large organisation you deserve not only a good and reliable website monitoring service – Statuscake website
