Free Website Monitoring Tools

I wanted a cheap (free) and simple way to perform basic website monitoring on a handful of urls. So I googled and blindly started signing up.My first page of search hits was full of reasonable contenders so I concluded that actual use would be the determining factor. My committed investment was only my time.

Here are the results...Please note that I invested minimal effort in setting them up. So your results may vary.


Simple Website Monitoring

How do you easily track the availability of a handful of websites? I have a few personal resource websites hosted in my basement. And a few others out on the web. My aDSL modem had started to intermittently go offline. Since I was not monitoring it, I was unsure how often this was happening. Once every few weeks in the winter could just be due to local power failures in the neighbourhood. Or may the modem was really dying a slow death? What was the uptime of my cloud based sites? I was embarrassed since I could not quickly answer these qiuestions...
