Pros: I used various free and not free monitoring services in the past. While these services were more established and mature at that time they also had way higher (price) entry point. I wanted to start with something that would be less costly while still satisfying my needs. In january 2016 I found Insping to be such service. I started with basic service which worked well and was easy and fast to implement. Soon I went with the paid service, because I needed better time granularity and more sites. Ever since I have been their paying customer. I do not know of any case where there was an actual outage and not receiving a mail in time. I get mails from them on daily or weekly basis, but always for an actual case. So I have a very positive experience with them and are not thinking at all about replacing them in the future.

Very cost effective, works well and reliably. Also setting up was not hard to do.

Cons: None that I can think of. They are covering my needs with good price/performance ratio and things simply work.

Overall: Peace of mind and not needing to setup and maintain my own such system. I am more than capable of doing it by myself, but being a busy IT expert I can spend my time doing other things instead. I have my virtual servers in several locations so I would be able to replicate many Insping services by myself, but time is money so I try to select where it is best spent.

Pros: Easy to use and set up. The Zapier integration is the best. This is a reliable service that helps us know when there is any downtime. It is great to get an alert when the site goes offline and when it goes back online.

Cons: Honestly, I cannot think of anything that I don't like about this product. It appears that they are constantly innovating and improving on a solid platform.

For me is the best way to know my servers are running as expected

Pros: I like the fact is simple to install, just paste the url and thats all. I also like the integration with slack and webhooks, it opens a lot of possibilities.

Cons: Being honest, I don't have any important concern about this service. Maybe the interface of the web page could be better, but nothing important.

Overall: Real time alerts throught Slack. Now all the team know when something happens with the server.

Pros: The easiest way to do some external check and a clean mail of alert. In my experience I've connected inspring mail to NAGIOS and do active check on email address.

Cons: I've not found a set of API to do some active check from our monitoring system, and have a unique monitor system with some sotellite systems like insping

Pros: The software is 100% hazle free to use and setup - only a few minutes more or less. I find it very stable as I haven't couth any false alarms the past years. To run any webpage without this kind of screening is in my opinion close to a "suicide".

Cons: I would like shorter checking intervals. As I am using the free version right now, the checking is set to 5 minutes. (Yes I am using the free version so who can really make any complaints ;)

Simple and easy to use.

Pros: The internal platform is super easy to use and configure your applications. So that everything is organized and with a friendly interface, I can monitor my servers completely accurately. Besides the interface, in my time of use of the software I do not receive false alarms and I do not have any loss of traffic due to the platform pings with my application.

Cons: Incredibly, I have no complaints about the software, but I believe that one feature that should help a lot is the implementation of new types of reports in the system in a way that makes it more accessible.

Pros: The Freshping app is extremely easy to set up and configure. This ease of use is due to the limited configuration options and single UI that is offered. This app has just enough functionality to give you the peace of mind that your online presence is up, as well as the necessary option to create a status page and custom domain.

Cons: The ability to set SLOs for the measured endpoints would make the service perfect. Not much of a criticism, though.

Overall: Very good. The few support queries I had were answered quickly and the service has never had an outage while I've been using it (~1 year)

Insping has always been my priority website monitoring for downtimes, it works perfectly!

Pros: Very fast and reliable. I can have the peace of mind knowing I know when it is down. Weekly reports are also very helpful.

Cons: I don't know. I have to think hard. I can't comeup with any. It worked for us as we wanted. No complaints.

Overall: Knowing when the site is down

Pros: I like the fact that I can integrate this service in Slack to monitor domain names and server hostnames and be alerted via the Slack mobile app so I can easily pick up alerts and resolve any issue with minimal downtime or before someone alerts me something is down.

Cons: I have noticed a couple of false alarms with this system where it says a domain name is not responding but when checking it is up - this could be because I'm on the free plan with a 5 minute check up period.

Overall: Easy monitoring straight to slack which makes it nice and simple to check service uptime.

Pros: Web hooks are great, I'm primarily using them to connect my twitter bot @bot_uptime to Insping. Insping reports my server status per 5 minutes and bot also provides information to my bot too. You can see first tweet on Jul 2017, it's been almost a whole year and insping never failed me.

Cons: Free tier has 5 minutes intervals, but it's not really a downside. 5 minutes is still generous and pretty good. I can't really say much negative about Insping, everything always worked as expected.

Overall: Monitored my server status for almost a year for free.

Insping keeps our several websites well monitored.

Cons: None--more frequent checks on the free plan would be nice, but it's probably too much to ask for nothing.

Pros: "Check" options are pretty good. The site allows a small amount of groupings of checks into diff categories which can be really convenient - either for environment or workload based checks.

Cons: Team management isn't great. An ideal situation would be to have multiple people associated with a team and then RBAC who can move, add, change checks/integrations.

A pleasure to setup and just leave running.

Pros: Integration with external tools makes this a breeze to setup and let run - safe in the knowledge that you only have to respond when you get an alert.

Cons: Although not a deal breaker - it would be nice to be able to select from a 'local node' from which to perform the up-time ping - this would make the response ms a bit more relevant.

Overall: Peace of mind :)

Pros: We just have to input a URL and it automatically checks it at the predefined interval. It's literally as easy as that. Once we input it, we don't have to touch it again. I had to actually go back into our account to see what the process was since it's been so long since we set it up.

Cons: I wish I could automate some posts and API calls to verify certain endpoints and that they have not regressed.

Overall: I get alerts whenever we have any downtime.

Pros: The really good thing about Freshping is that it works right out of the box, FREE for 50 sites and lets you create different status page for you and your clients. It is seamlessly connected to the other Freshapps like Freshdesk so if your site goes down, it creates a ticket automatically for the helpdesk to resolve! How convenient is that!

Cons: The only con of the software is that the custom domain does not work. I tried to contact support but because it is FREE, I did not get any response.

Overall: Overall experience was very convenient. No cost for the business and definitely one of the most promising tools to monitor your websites.

Pros: Insping covers a lot of important positives for us at the YV. It's really simple to setup, easy to understand and the alerts can be really valuable in reacting quickly to any issues before our contractors are able to let us know themselves.

Cons: We don't have too many downsides with using Insping. We have not (yet) set up any more complicated alerts although we may look to create monitoring for our API in the future.

In the future it may be useful to share graphs with teams (internal and external) without creating accounts for them to help share info on downtime etc. Sending a invite only link to a dashboard / interactive graph (rather than screenshot) may be a useful future addition.

Pros: I have build almost 20+ Websites in the past and it has always been my requirement to keep a track of the websites up and down status. Freshping has made it possible after uptime robot. It has a cool interface and gives me the ability to check the status every minute, that too at not cost. Simple awesome and highly useful.

Cons: Limit of 1 minute, but obviously justified for being free

Simple and useful

Pros: Just add a URL and start receiving downtime notifications. This is an easy and simple way to get informed of your sites health.

Cons: It could be great to receive response info from different world places. I know that my site, sometimes, is unreachable os has slower access from some citys. This info is great to check hoster responsability.

Overall: I know when my site is not working and I can fix it asap.

Easy to setup and and reliable.

Pros: The monitoring just works. You don't have to do anything, except waiting for messages if one of your site is down.

Cons: There are some limitations in the free version. The number of sites to monitor is 2 and checks are done only every 5 minutes.

Overall: The software monitors my websites and it does it in a reliable manner. It sends you a mail whenever one of the monitored websites encounters problems and is unavailable.

Generally positive. Does what it claims to do and good enough for basic monitoring.

Pros: Low cost alternative to get basic monitoring so I have at least some visibility into the uptime compared to having no visibility.

The simplicity and value for money.

Cons: No way to configure at least 2 alerts triggered/retry before sending a notification email. On receipt of the 1st email, I wonder if it's something temporal (eg packet loss) or genuinely down.

Very convenient

Pros: I like how easy it is to add an endpoint and get notifications in Slack when that endpoint goes down or comes up. I use it to receive alerts on some of my home servers.

Cons: The Web UI could be a little prettier. Right now, everything is very basic, which makes it easy to find everything, but, it could look nicer and have tools to manage endpoints.

Simple service to monitor uptime of your websites.

Pros: They give you a nice timeline of the results of the checks. It is also nice that you can check TCP, Websockets, ports and DNS resolution.

Cons: The timeline could be more visual in the duration of the outages. Now all points on the timeline are at the same distance of each other. I think it would be nice to have visual feedback on the durations.

Pros: Just getting started on an app and having a free easy to use tool for uptime monitoring has been a great find. Simple to set up. Works like they say it should.

Cons: Some more customizations for the dashboard..

Overall: Keeping track of our uptime and notifying us when it's not up. Prior to insping we had a few outages and were not aware of it.
