Today I'm spending a lot of time using: Down for Everyone or Just Me? Because my server is attempting to be hacked, and needless to say I am concerned (specially, since it is the first day of school for most schools.) Oh, I'm talking about HoodaMath.com. So, what should you be using to make sure your site is up? For starters, Down for Everyone or Just Me?
Pingdom.com is key, I have it ping directly to my phone, night or day. You can set it for 5 minutes(default), I have it at 1 minute, which might be crazy and cause a false alert, but to me, every minute count$. Only downfall is that you can only choose one URL to ping, but if you are making tons of money you can afford to pay their monthly fee for 2+ urls.
