Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – (The Hosting News) – November 6, 2008 – What is deemed the industry’s first free comprehensive geographic website monitoring services, offering fully featured, no limits website monitoring from node locations around the world, has launched at UptimeSpy.
Chris Henning, Developer of the site noted, ”We’ve developed a monitoring service that offers world-class features and no usage limits for our users. By integrating UptimeSpyâ€™s monitoring network with a real-time Host Metrics portal, we are able to serve both our users and the hosting community as a whole, all free of charge.”
The new service allows webmasters to monitor the performance of their sites and receive instant text message or email alerts if downtime is detected. UptimeSpy’s network of international monitoring nodes helps eliminate false alarms and allows the system to determine which geographical regions are affected by downtime or slow performance. This sensitivity allows webmasters to isolate problems more easily.
To get started with UptimeSpy, users simply create a free account and add as many domains or IP addresses as they would like to be monitored. Within their personalized control panel, users can configure individual node ping time sensitivity, alert methods, service types, monitoring intervals, and more.
In addition to personalized monitoring services, UptimeSpy offers a unique metrics portal that publicly displays the performance of leading Web hosting providers. The Host Metrics portal displays speeds for ping response, HTTP response, and average uptime as a percentage. The statistics allow users to verify or dispute the published guarantees of their Web host, and request SLA compensation.
UptimeSpy also provides HTML code for a real-time button displaying the average uptime statistic. Founding Sponsors, which allow UptimeSpy to operate as a free service, include Future Hosting (www.futurehosting.biz), Lunarpages (www.lunarpages.com), Webintellects (www.webintellects.com), and Superb Hosting (www.superbhosting.net).
Launched in 2008, UptimeSpy provides the industry’s first free, comprehensive worldwide geographic monitoring service, enabling webmasters to see real-time uptime and performance results from nodes located around the world. With no usage limits and an intuitive user interface, UptimeSpy provides a vital service to webmasters and Web hosting providers.
