StatusCake

If you’re looking for an alternative to Pingability then StatusCake is the perfect website monitoring service for you.

StatusCake’s free uptime monitoring is feature-packed and easy-to-use. Unlike Pingability which will only check your website’s uptime every hour, StatusCake ensures you’re on top of downtime by checking your website’s availability every 5 minutes.

And unlike Pingability, whose payment plans can be complex to calculate – you can estimate what your monthly fee is going to be but it varies month-by-month – StatusCake tells you exactly what you get up front with a low, compelling flat fee.
