A Message from the StatusCake Founders to all Pingdom Users

change log

Dear Pingdom Users,

We launched in July last year.  Since then we’ve grown from a few, to many and now tens of thousands of customers.  But one thing has remained constant.  We’ve ensured from the start that our platform is stable and reliable.  That our product delivers great features for the best possible value.  And that our customer service is second to none.

Today Pingdom announced that it was thrilled to be “upgrading” its accounts across the board.  But this upgrade came at a hefty price.  Many Pingdom users took to Twitter to voice their dismay including the following:


At StatusCake we don’t determine pricing according to how many websites you want to monitor.  If you want to monitor 1, 10 or 100 websites on our free plan you can.  That’s why StatusCake is the only website to truly offer free unlimited website monitoring.

We believe that uptime monitoring should be available for all.  That’s why we’re reaching out to all you Pingdom account holders; and in particular those who can no longer afford website monitoring with Pingdom.   If you move across to StatusCake we’ll provide you with all the tools you need to migrate your tests across to us.

If you’d like to learn more about how we can bring you over to StatusCake of if you have any questions at all about our website monitoring service then please email us.  And just as importantly we love feedback – good or bad – let us know!

James Barnes & Daniel Clarke,


P.S. – We also did our own “upgrade” today but we did it the StatusCake way.  All account holders now get unlimited Real User Monitoring page-views at no extra cost.
