What is website uptime monitor?
“Get notified by Email, Slack or SMS if your website is down :)” – ManageWP
How Uptime Monitor works?
- Every minute the system will check your websites
- If the Uptime Monitor doesn’t get the expected response, it’ll keep trying a couple more times to confirm that the site is down. If it is still unresponsive, you will receive a notification
- The notification will tell you which website is down
- You will also receive notifications when your websites go back up
