New Feature: Blacklist Monitoring

Recently we released a brand new feature on StatusCake called Blacklist Monitoring which our customers can use to check if their website has been added to various internet blacklists which many users incorporate into their browsing experience to avoid spam and malware. we have added 15 of the biggest lists to our selection to start, with plans to include more in the near future.

Blacklist Monitoring is an excellent tool for helping to protect the integrity of your website. You can make sure that customers are never dissuaded or prevented from gaining access, and that damaging effects on reputation are picked up and resolved quickly – in short, enabling Blacklist Monitoring on all of your tests gives you even more peace of mind while using the Statuscake service.

In order to use Blacklist Monitoring you just need to create a new test, or edit an existing one. Once you have done this, you should go to the test settings page and scroll down until you see the option to enable the feature, you can also enter a blacklist IP if you want to check an internal service that differs to the test URL. After completing this action, simply submit the test, and you will then be able to view the data on the test details page.
