Cool Tech of the Week
If you have websites running you need to make sure they stay running. While your hosting provider might promise 99.99999% uptime, they don’t always deliver. And a sign of great customer service is to know about outages before your customers have to notify you.
There are a lot of free URL monitoring solutions out there but the Cool Tech of the Week is one of the best web monitoring solutions I have discovered, Better Uptime.
While they have a free version which is excellent, one of the best features of Better Uptime is the way they handle incident alerting and on-call team scheduling. If you have a team and need to intelligently SMS text, call, or email the right person before waking up the Tech Smart Boss, then Better Uptime is for you.
They also have great integration with notification platforms like Slack, visually appealing public and private status pages for your business, and they just released port monitoring, so you can do more than just websites, you can monitor your app services.
Check it out, out Cool Tech of the Week, Better Uptime.
