...for being the most time-consuming and boring job in the world if we had to do it manually. Imagine doing a test if your site is up every two minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! Fortunately, there are automated tools which can help us out with fulfilling that task, almost without any effort. But what is hidden behind a phrase website monitoring? It's tracking the availability, response time and performance of a website, so every user can access it and have as good experience as possible.

Millions of bloggers, Web Masters and Web Devs, SEO specialists, SaaS owners any many more must know if their websites are up or not.
Sites go down from time to time and it's natural until it won't last for too long. Not a single site on the web is up for 100% of the time, but we constantly must ask: when will next downtime happen and what can I do to shorten it?

What comes next is lack of trust from the users' side - your business reputation can be harmed irreversibly. Whenever it is a company or a single website owner, the feeling of embarrassment is certain, you just look unreliable.
