What you must know
Often, your servers appear to be working just fine from within your office. You can retrieve Web pages, e-mail appears to function and more. What's more important, however, is if your site is accessible from the rest of the world.
As a EasyWebEditor / 1SITE or HyperPublish customer, you are completely free, so you can choose *any* monitoring service.
We suggest our service 1stWarning, developed in association with NetApplications, http://visualvision.1stwarning.com/
It is a web-based monitor, which means no false positives and no software to install. If your site is down, we'll let you know.
We monitor your site from geographically disparate locations in the U.S. and U.K This ensures that a local internet outage in one region will not produce a false alert. Another way we prevent false alerts is to retry the tests multiple times over a two-minute period. This eliminates alerts for short-term problems.
For those with service level agreements (SLA), you can now document the full extent of downtime to request a refund from your internet service provider.
With our service, you can monitor multiple services on the same server in case any one of them goes down. For example, you can set up your account to measure HTTP, SMTP, DNS, POP3, HTTPS, ping, or even customize your setup for other ports not listed.
