Sometimes it's important to know if your or your client's sites are up and running, and if the hoster is actually able to deliver real uptime, which most aren't.

I found what looks to be a good service, siteuptime.com that offers both a free, basic uptime utility, checks every 1/2 hour or hour, or for a very reasonable fee, $5 a month, checks upto every 5 minutes. Failure of the server to deliver a response header to a request results in an email being sent to you.

Worth checking into I'd say, there are a lot of bad hosters out there, I know I have had to deal with uptime questions too often this week on a big site.

Well i found completely free service arovaxuptime.com monitors located on a great amount of different servers examine a service (www, smtp, pop3) and get information about its efficiency.
Monitors check services every 4 minutes and there is no limitations on this.

Generally - Thumbs Up for Arovax UpTime!

nice one.. But y do you choose paid monitoring service when you can monitor your sites free. I would like to suggest you 100pulse website monitoring service where you can monitor upto 2 sites free. It's the easiest way to detect your downtime and uptime and they will alert you through email, RSS feed and google gadgets instantly.
