Community Plan Improvements & SMS Cost Reduction

StatusCake has always valued its community user base; It’s always been our view that if we can support companies at their earliest stages then down the line when they need more advanced monitoring then they know and understand our feature rich product; While other website monitoring platforms are doing more and more to restrict what their free users get, we’ve been looking at what more we can provide and with that in mind have made some improvements to the community plan.

Our community plan users now have access to 1 page speed test (set to run daily). Page Speed allows you to understand how your site loads beyond just the single files. With Page Speed, all content including Javascript, Images, and other external resources are loaded, analysed and their speed presented to you in an actionable way. We understand that you might have the best server with the best backend in the world, but if you’re using external resources such as advertising networks, analytics, or content CDN’s then they can impact your site and more importantly – your reputation and StatusCake at its core is about protecting your reputation online.

If you need more page speed monitoring tests then they are included in all our paid plans with check rates up to every 5 minutes and a widespread of geographic locations – giving you the power to understand your site’s performance not just locally but globally.

We’ve also used this opportunity to make some improvements to the page speed interface and performance. We’ve also added an often requested feature of being able to print the waterfall charts it produces.

But it’s not just free users who are benefiting from these changes – continuing to ensure we offer the best deal for our customers we’ve also been looking at SMS credits and have reduced the prices across the board. You’ll be getting more credits for the same money than you did last week. Got a superior plan? We’ve upped the included monthly credits from 25 all the way up to 75.
