We'll check your website more often

Friendly and fast

We love our customers. That’s why we’ve got live chat functionality so you can talk to us in real-time – even on our free plan!

With Pingdom and other competitors, you may need to set aside a couple of hours for them to reply. At StatusCake, our median first response time is 21 minutes, and the time to close – where we’ve resolved your ticket – is just 2 hours and 19 minutes.

Stuck on Pingdom? Migrating couldn't be easier

We've made migrating from Pingdom to StatusCake super quick and easy. You can find our importer tool in your StatusCake account, which allows you to import all your Pingdom tests in seconds.

The importer tool is available to all StatusCake customers including those on a free trial.
