More tests. Better features. Incredible value.

If you’re looking for the most effective uptime monitoring service on the market, you’ve found us! Welcome. We’re a great alternative to our SolarWinds-owned competitors with a free-for-life plan and fast customer support all year round, regardless of your plan.

Not got the $$$’s? Whatever your budget, we believe you should have access to great quality website monitoring. You won’t get access to a free account with those pingdomers, but you will with us. For life. Plus on our paid plans, you’ll get better check rates, more features, and a far better monitoring suite to help you drive revenue. Don’t take our word for it.

Hear from someone who came to us wanting a solution to their Pingdom woes…

I thank the tech “Gods” I found at StatusCake as a result of finally getting totally sick of literally hundreds of weekly false “site down” alerts from our former provider. I’m embarrassed to say I tolerated that monitoring service for several years!

In the 1+ months since moving to StatusCake, I have received a handful of alerts and they were all real. What a delightful change (oh, and far better dashboard, and easier to utilize). Thanks, StatusCake! 

Man thinking about alerts

Pingdom? No SSL monitoring, no server monitoring, no domain monitoring. We offer all of these services because we want you to have the very best.

StatusCake’s paid plans also offer more tests and more features than Pingdom. The best part? They’re less money.

A typical Pingdom customer with 100 uptime tests will pay 90% more than a StatusCake customer. Piece of cake!

Tearing your hair out stuck on Pingdom? Migrating to StatusCake couldn't be easier

We don’t want you to have to use a more expensive website monitoring a second longer than you have to, and that’s why 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.

So why choose StatusCake?

We'll check your website more often than Pingdom

Pingdom’s 1-minute check rates are good, but what if you wanted them just that little bit quicker? We know that being alerted to website downtime as soon as it happens is vital and that’s why we offer a 30-second check rate on StatusCake Business, and an industry exclusive constant check rate with StatusCake Enterprise.
