Free Uptime Monitoring

At StatusCake we know that some customers will want to make use of a free uptime monitoring tool.  Our free community plan is there for as long as you want it and comes with features such as Public Reporting.  You can sign-up for a free StatusCake account here.

StatusCake helps you detect micro-downtime…

With our StatusCake plans we give you the ability to check your website for downtime more regularly than Uptime Robot.  Our Business plan allows for a 30 second check-rate, whilst our Enterprise plan has “constant” monitoring.

Slow Page Load is the New Downtime

Detecting downtime is important, but just as critically knowing when you site is loading slowly (although technically up), is just as important to your business.

Not only do almost half of all internet users expect a page to load in 2 seconds or less, but a massive 80% of users who are unhappy with the performance of a website are unlikely to buy from that site again.

StatusCake page-speed monitoring not only alerts you when your website page load time exceeds a certain threshold or file size, but also gives you all the data you need to analyse what’s slowing your site down.

All the features of Uptime Robot and more…

All of our StatusCake paid plans have the features of Uptime Robot, such as maintenance windows and SSL monitoring, but you’ll also benefit from domain monitoring, and virus scan.

Over 90% of our customers rate StatusCake support as “Great” or “Love it”.*

The support at StatusCake is second to none.  Unlike many of our competitors, including Uptime Robot, where possible we try to resolve all customer queries in as near real time as possible using live chat.  Our live support is a quick-and-easy way of talking to the StatusCake team who are all friendly, passionate about the StatusCake products, and experts on website monitoring.

If you’d like to know more about StatusCake then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
