Pros: I currently use this in the free version, and set up and account for each of the clients with one dedicated email per account, which allows both me and the client to be notified when sites go down. The premium model seems pretty great, and a value for the money.

Cons: I can't really say that I have a con about this service. I personally wish there was more of an agency bundle, which would allow you to have multiple sites under one account, monitor, but have billing paid out to the client.

Overall: I'm able to know when sites go down and whether its indicative of the server or the website itself.

Only use the free service, but it's second to none

Pros: I use this across a group of websites that I maintain, it's my first line of defense against downtime. It's respoinsive emails are apparent in seconds, and I utilise them to maintain uptime figures in the 99.999% area. Without them, and this singular feature, I doubt that would be possible. At least not in terms of writing zero code and paying any money.

Cons: I have no qualms. The software does what it says on the tin. End of story.

Overall: I believe my first paragraph says it all. I'm very happy with the features of the software

Pros: Down Notifier is simple and provides exactly what you need. If your site goes down, you get an email. I use the free version and it is perfect. This tool can save you a lot of money if you run paid advertising

Cons: I haven't experienced anything negative with DownNotifier

Overall: I run multiple sites and I use DownNotifier on a few of them. I set alerts for sites that are prone to crashing from too much traffic. A lot of the times, you just need to restart the server, so this tool has definitely helped me increase uptime and avoid sending traffic to a crashed site.

Pros: For people without large IT departments, DownNotifier provides monitoring and peace of mind so you know when your site is not functioning. Even when I'm traveling, I'm able to stay on top of site outages and resolve them. I don't know what I'd do without DownNotifier.

Cons: There are no negative issues with this software.

Overall: We've experienced increase uptime and higher customer satisfaction because we can address problems more quickly. DownNotifier keeps us running!

Pros: It's instant - as soon as my site is down, I've gotten an email and a text message, anywhere in the world. When it's back up, I know that too.

Cons: Nothing to dislike - as long as I know my site is down, I know I need to tend to it.

Overall: Overall this has been a positive service. When/if my site goes down, and it can happen to anyone, I know instantly and can work to restore it. Every hour/minute of downtime is money down the drain, so having a jumpstart on any issues saves me a lot of money.

Pros: The number one feature I enjoy about this is that we get notified via email the moment our site goes down. We can notify our development company before they even know there is a problem.

Cons: There isn't anything we don't like about this amazing service. We'd like to take advantage of being notified via text message is possible.

Overall: We get to find out when our site is down and not able to take orders. This is essential for our industry.

Pros: It is fast, it is easy to set up a new monitoring. I did not see such simple UI in many other monitoring websites.

Cons: You can not set up time between checks, and sometimes because of that - in website logs you see hundreds of checks in a row between real usage.

Overall: We as a company have a lot of websites, and some clients are very crucial. With help of downnotifier we can react very fast if something bad happened and websites is / are down.

Pros: I have a server in a data center. I cant watch them all the time, so being able to receive email and text notifications instantly when the data center is having a problem and my server cant be seen is critical. This is an affordable solution that has worked every time!

Cons: No complaints at all. Everything has been working great.

Overall: A few times my data center has had ISP outages and i knew instantly. Times when i have rebooted my server, i got a down notification which makes me feel good that if its down for an unknown reason, i will know right away.

Pros: I like the instant warning and notification that my site is down, which helps me trouble shoot issues and figure out if I need to contact my body, as well as keep track of how reliable they are.

Cons: The thing I like the least are notifications for extremely brief downs, such as those that are less than a minute or a few seconds long. Of course brief outages are normal so thus warning can be frustrating

Vendor Response

by DownNotifier.com on September 29, 2018

Hi Gina,

We now have an update for brief downtimes. You can now set alert limits to set a minimum downtime before you get an alert (https://www.downnotifier.com/list/account/alert-limit).

You need a premium account for this feature. Because you was the first one on this site to help us to design this feature, we would like to offer you a premium account for free. Please send us an e-mail with your account login to arrange that.

Thank you for your review,

Pros: To get the best of the website, you need to get the premium package. But it is easy to use, and when your website is down it tells you the cause. It records the history of your uptime and downtime throughout the year.

You can also change the time interval on how many requests you want Downnotifier to ping your website. From every 20 seconds to an hour. Personally, every 20 secs is a bit extreme so I'm using 10 minutes per ping.

An e-mail is sent your mailbox whenever your website is down. You can add multiple e-mail accounts on where you want them to send it to. You can even receive SMS alerts! Personally I never use it, but it's nice to have.

Cons: It's missing something like a Public Status Page. If the website is down, I want customers to know the status on what's happening and we are aware. Or for them to check if the website is really down or it's just them.

Pros: It's free and keeps me up-to-date about the uptime of my servers and about the servers of my customers. I use down notifier as a fail safe for my other uptime checker.

Cons: Free version doesn't give you al the details of the uptime of your server/website. Would like to see a graph added to it so i can check the number of times it went down and for how long.

Overall: Faster response on downtime

Simple to setup and I get notified when something breaks. All that I can ask for at this point.

Cons: I guess what I enjoy least about downnotifier is the pretty bare-bones design, which is does the job but does not accentuate the important information enough.

Pros: It's free and simple to use. That's about it.

Cons: Main issue is you can't restrict tests to specific regions. With various motivations for blocking the EU, I get outrage notifications when tests originate there. It doesn't even tell you the location of the test when a problem is found.

It also should give more information on the problem. Sometimes it reports an error and sometimes it doesn't.

I run multiple down notifiers and this one seems to have a lot of false positives.

Overall: See above.

I use the free product. It notified me immediately when an Apache upgrade went awry.

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do and tells me when my client's werbsite goes down. However, we changed from www to non-www, and added SSL to the website and it had an alert when I logged in asking me if I wanted to update the URL. Good touch!

Cons: The login. If you go to My Monitors > It says "Please enter your email address to login or register."

I had entered my email address, then it asks for a password. It doesn't let you know that the password is only for people who have accounts as it appeared to me I was setting up a new account. It said my password was incorrect.

So, do I didn't know if I had an account with that email or not. It should have given me more info.

Overall: I like it because I like to know when my client's websites are down before my clients see it. Ha

Pros: I love the instant emails i receive whenever one of my sites is down.

Cons: I wish the software was intuitive enough to know what the issue is and offer support/diagnostics. Just knowing that the site is down isn't always enough--what can I do? How long will this last? Etc.

Overall: Overall, I'm glad a colleague told me about this software. It's always helpful to know when something is down or not functioning properly so that I can find a solution before my clients/members notice the issue.

Pros: You can get started for free and test out its accuracy and responsiveness (both of which are great) without ever adding a credit card.

Cons: It would be nice to have the ability to only alarm if the target is down for x minutes, so if a minute or two is expected for regular maintenance, the alarm wouldn't trigger.

Pros: i like that because i have such a small website , i can get away with using a free account! i rarely have site outages but when i DO that's a sign something got unplugged.

Cons: Honestly nothing ... the emails you get when you've run out of credits are kind of annoying but they're necessary.
