    As a website owner, any people need to monitor website up time to make sure the visitors happy with their website as much as possible. You know, even though, you visit your website 100 times/day you still not make sure your website have up time 100%.

    You will never know sometimes your site ‘s down in some minutes and only your visitors see it. It is not good if you customers think your service is not reliable enough. That ‘s why the monitor up time server was born with a lot of useful functionality.

    In this blog post, I will show you 4 options for best free website up time monitor services

    1. Monitor.us

    As a part of TeamViewer family, Monitor.us bring to us a very good monitor features for FREE. Some of advantage services need to pay but I think the free service is good enough for almost people.

    • Website monitor

    • Open API monitor
    • Server Monitor
    • Mobile monitor
    • Full page load monitor
    • All-in-one monitor

    Sign up and get start just in minute in http://monitor.us then just add your website and enjoy the great free services.

    The statistic from monitor.us is very detail with nice chart

    Every time your site meet down time it will notify your via email (Free method) and then you can check it fix it as soon as possible. In the internet world, I think the email method and SMS method is the same, so that the email method is good enough for us :).

    2. Uptimerobot.com

    The next one in our list, we have to take a look is Uptimerobot with totally free service and nice features too. In general, they design the system only to monitor website down time and no more than that. But still, I think we shouldn’t request more than that from pure free service with a nice UI.

    It take you not more than 2 minutes to sign up and add new website to get started

    3. Siteuptime.com

    The third in my list is Siteuptime with limited free service, they only offer one website to monitor for free, if you need more than one then you have to pay more.

    In my part, I think it ‘s pretty good so far, but if you are in the first step in uptime monitor, I highly recommend you choose the first or the second service first. If they work well for you then you don’t have to pay.

    As always, this service only take you not more than 2 minutes to sign up and add new website to monitor

    4. Pingdom.com

    Even though, Pingdom is a paid service but it still have a free offer in this link https://www.pingdom.com/free/ with one website monitor only. A lowest package will take you $9/month.

    Well, not sure how to say about pingdom, with me it ‘s very good with full features like Monitor.us, but I still don’t know what case to use pingdom in paid service since we have a lot of more free service with the same quality. Or maybe some very good feature from pingdom I didn’t realize. It ‘s for you to discover.

    To me, I add one website to pingdom and everything work very well, and work well just like Monitor.us what is free service 🙂

      I used Pingdom for years, the most import feature I see from them that they detect the down time very quickly. I can say it will help you detect every minutes. But other take you 30 mins.

        Actually, if you use other service instead of pingdom, you need to buy the pro account if you want to track every minute. I believe it will not charge you too much but they will bring us a very nice service. About pingdom, they only provide you a free service for one website.

      I think we should use and stick with monitorus because it ‘s a product of teamviewer what is a big brand name for a long time. We can trust the service come with that brand name. They have enough skills to do better.

        For the paid service, I still think the first one monitor.us is the best, it ‘s a product of teamviewer what is really famous.
