5 reasons your website needs to be monitored

5 reasons your website needs to be monitored

Posted on September 29, 2017
Have you ever loaded your website just to check if it is up? Of course you had! Probably even multiple times a day... Luckily for us, we don't need to do that anymore, because we can rely on automated services who do that for us and warn us in case your clients can not open your website.

Here are 5 most important reasons you should use a website monitoring service:

  1. Every minute of downtime costs you money
    Have you ever been frustrated that you can not load an e-commerce website and therefore you can't order that thing you wanted so bad? Imagine your customers who can not access your site and buy what you are selling. And even worse, imagine that you are not even aware that your online store is unavailable. It means lots of lost orders...
  2. You can sleep well
    Your site visitors may come from all around the world, so it is important to keep it running 24x7. Many site owners feel uneasy before going to sleep and get worried that their site might crash while they sleep. Do not be one of them!
  3. Provide a proof of downtime for your hosting service
    Not all hosting services inform you when your site goes down because of their fault. Checking your website as often as 1 minute and getting daily uptime reports is a good way to prove that your hosting provider does not keep their SLA promise.
  4. Keep good reputation with search engines
    Google doesn't like slow and problematic websites and punishes them by decreasing their search result rankings. Getting instant SMS or E-Mail downtime alerts means you can act quickly and resolve problems as soon as they occur.
  5. It is just embarrassing!
    Don't find out about website loading problems from your visitors! It is really embarrassing! Find out about it immediately by getting an SMS or an E-Mail and act quickly before most people notice!
