How to Check if My Website is Always Online?

April 15, 2019    Reading Time: 2 Minutes

Let me guess!

You had a phone call from a customer saying your website was down.

You type in your website address and it’s online.

What’s the deal?

Are they pulling your leg?

Nope. It was probably offline.

Most hosting providers claim that your website is online 99.99% of the time, but what does that mean?

You would think your website is online every second of the day, but that’s not the case. Most hosting companies claim that they have a 99.99% uptime guarantee, but have you verified that on your own?

Your website needs to be online every second of the day. It’s an investment, but if it’s not online, it’s worthless or even a liability.

How to check if your website is online 24/7?

There are many uptime checkers that will monitor your website 24/7.

There are free and paid options, which of course you get what you pay for. The lowest interval checker on a free plan is generally every 5 minutes. For a shorter interval, it’s a premium service. Also, some offer email or text alerts.

A few companies that offer online uptime checks are:

Uptime checks are included in all our hosting plans for our customers. That way our customers don’t have to think about it. We check their websites every 60 seconds. That way our customers can be assured their website is online no matter what time of the day, even when they’re sleeping.

On a related note, the lower cost your hosting is, the more chances that it’ll be slow and be offline. Again, you get what you pay for.
