We’d like to write a piece about this great little web monitoring site that we came across and have used to monitor out sites for some time now.
Accessible at UptimeRobot.com, the site allows you to monitor up to 50 sites, every 5 minutes, for free!
The GUI is lovely, the notifications – SMS, Twitter, email, web hooks or PUSH – are perfect and the number of monitors you can include for a particular site are just right. UR will allow you to monitor HTTP/S, Ping, Port and keywords too. You are able to view uptime, downtime, and response times as well as average downtime across a period of time.
And for those that really want to delve in, an API is also available for developers to use to integrate the service into their own apps.
Check it out, we think you’ll love it!
We’ve recently changed our ISP to Virgin Media and were kindly surprised when we found that we could get the industry renound antivirus softare “F-Secure SAFE” for free to install on up to 5 computers (PC and Mac versions available) for one year. After this it is available at a reduced price of £25pa.
Virgin’s explanation and more details on this are available at the following link: http://store.virginmedia.com/discover/broadband/security/f-secure-safe.html
It is also good to see that Virgin discuss the fact Macs aren’t susceptible to attack, and have further useful information on how to keep your computer safe when connected to the Internet on this page. Well worth a read!
