5 Tools to Auto-Detect Downtimes on Your Site

However good your web hosting might be, sooner or later you will have some downtime. It happens to all of us. If you can be the first to know when your site goes down, though, the problem will be much smaller, because you will be able to contact the customer support and hopefully solve the issue before most readers even notice it.

Below you will find 5 tools that can help you with that.

1. Pingdom
