Monitor your site's uptime
Every month you are paying your host for keeping your website online. Your business likely depends on customers accessing your website at often odd hours of the day. If your website has constant downtime, customers will move on to the next site. Frequent downtime will also cause your site to lose rank in the search engines as well. So how do you know if your site has constant downtime or not?
This is where peaMonitor comes in
With even the free plan from peaMonitor you are able to monitor your website's uptime and see directly from your browser what your uptime percentage is. You can filter by daily, weekly, and even monthly statistics; so you can get a clear idea if your site is staying online, or if there is some underlying server issue. Knowing the uptime of your site is an invaluable metric, which quite frankly cannot be left up to your host.
Your host likely offers an SLA
Did you know that most hosts over a SLA with their hosting packages? Most all hosts will refund the month of hosting if their servers do not meet their published uptime requirements. peaMonitor allows you to take advantage of these SLA's by giving you a report showing your monthly uptime.
Popular hosts and their uptime
- Godaddy - 99.99%
- HostGator - 99.9%
- InMotion - 99.9%
- A2 Hosting - 99.9%
As you can see most popular hosts only allow for about 4 minutes and 15 seconds of downtime per month before they are outside of their guarantee. Pulling a monthly uptime report from peaMonitor could save you tens, or even hundreds of dollars per month. This is one of the features that makes peaMonitor a valuable tool to have in your toolbox.
