Webmasters need to ensure that their websites are up and running, even when they are not near their laptops. Here to help with this through SMS alerts is a site called MonitorHub.
MonitorHub is a free to use web service that has something very valuable to offer web developers. The ability to monitor one’s website and get notified if the site is crashing and / or facing any sort of downtime. Your might have set up your own website and gone off to a vacation. But without your supervision, your site might have crashed at the cost of traffic being missed. All you need to do is readjust a few settings, do a few mouse clicks, and the site will be back up.
But in order to do that you must first know that the site is facing downtime. That is where MonitorHub comes into play. You can set up your account on the site to send you SMS and email notifications after the app detects that you site is down. You start by creating your account, then giving the app your site URL, and then providing your cellphone number.
The dashboard shows you the exact time for which your website has been down. You can add monitors for multiple websites. But the free package allows monitoring of only 1 website and it allows only email notifications. If you want more sites monitored and SMS notifications enabled, you must go for the premium accounts that begin from $10 per month.
