What is an Uptime Monitor?
An uptime monitor is a software product which helps you monitor
your websites "uptime" or the amount of time your appliction is online vs offline.
Our site can send you alerts via email/sms, and show you historical reports
for your websites uptime. We can check if your website is online as often as every 5 minutes.
How can I add a new website to monitor?

How do I test to see if its working?
After you create a new url, you can simply click the "test" button to see if its online. If you want to make sure the app is working without pressing the test button, you can change the url to something that doesnt exist and wait for the alert response to your email address or phone number.

What are the different ways an alert can be triggerred?
There are three different types of alert conditions:
1) Client / Server Side: This setting will trigger an alert for any respose that is 400 or greater (both client and server side).
2) Anything other then 200: This will trigger an alert for a response that is anything other then 200.
3) Custom API This setting will trigger a response based upon value that you input, or value that is obtained from a website.
With this response there are 4 settings:
Is not equal to current response: In this case we make a request
to the url you have inputted and save the response in our database.
With this setting, whenever we make a request to the url, we will
compare it to the result stored in the database and alert you when anything changes.
If they are not perfectly equal, an alert will be trigerred.
Is equal to current response: This is exactly like the case mentioned above,
except it will trigger when the response is the same as in the database.
Is equal to (Insert Custom Value)): In this case, you can insert your own expected response. An alert will be triggerred when the response from the url is equal to the response you input.
Is not equal to (Insert Custom Value)): In this case, you can insert your own expected response. An alert will be triggerred when the response from the url is not equal to the response you input.
