Website monitoring can do more than tell you if your website is up or down.
If your website is down, a lot of things can happen – especially if you are not aware that your website is experiencing a problem. You could be missing out on valuable clicks, conversions, and revenue, not to mention the fact that you may be souring your online reputation.
While ensuring a website’s uptime and performance is crucial to any good website administrator’s mission, you’re only human. Staying awake 24/7 to monitor your website is impossible, and it isn’t cost-effective to have a staff member on-duty simply to monitor your website uptime and performance.
So what is a website administrator to do?

Websites don’t always age gracefully
If you monitor your website, you can spot downtime and performance trends over time. This could potentially help you spot inefficient code, bloated files, damaged hardware, or any number of things.
Your pen-pal won’t let you know about downtime quick enough
Do you know if your site is up on the other side of the world? While your pen-pal might, he won’t be able to send you a message quickly enough for you to act.
You know who will?
A website monitoring service with more than 130+ global checkpoints keeping track of your uptime.
Uptime guarantees are near-useless if your website is popular
A lot of web hosting providers offer uptime guarantees. But if your website suddenly receives a spike in traffic, it may be unable to handle the weight. If your site ever goes down and you aren’t watching, you’ll have no recourse without physical evidence of downtime.
Uptrends can perform SLA monitoring (service level agreement monitoring) and give you the proof you need if your web hosting provider is dropping the ball.
Provide yourself with the data you need to succeed
Uptime means everything to an online business, so it can be really handy to have physical evidence that your website is up and performing optimally across any period of time.
Website monitoring is chump change compared to downtime losses
A slow or unavailable website can severely impact business – after all, your customers can’t make a purchase if they can’t reach you or if a page doesn’t load properly.
If you operate an online store, Uptrends offers website transaction monitoring, so you know if any step of the transaction process is failing at any given time.
