Also consider Netwhistle ( http://www.netwhistle.com ), that will monitor, free of charge, as much as five sites for you personally. It transmits out email alerts when among the sites in your list goes lower and on the other hand when it is support. It will likewise send an every week summary are accountable to you. Good tool.

www.webpartner.com includes a free service.

It's *not* perfect - you'll from time to time get notices that the website is lower if this really is not, and you'll from time to time possess the site go lower and WebPartner does not really notice (because it only inspections every fifteen minutes approximately).

It's, however, reasonably reliable, and it is well worth the cost you have to pay for doing things ($.00).

Don't put you are entire server farm in WebPartner's hands, but when all you are searching for is one thing to inform you in case your site is lower, and also you bear in mind that you ought to always by hand verify the errors it transmits, it works fairly well.
