How to Monitor WordPress Website Uptime 24/7

By December 24, 2015October 2nd, 2016Productivity, WordPress

You’ve invested a lot of time and money on your WordPress website, so doesn’t it make sense to know when that investment is working for you and when it isn’t?

Downtime happens, and the sooner you know your site is down the faster you can get it back online. What you hope to avoid is a customer letting you know. There is an easier way to monitor website uptime.

Head over to your website real quick… is it up? It probably is and that’s great. However, every minute your website is down could cost you lost revenue or lead opportunities.

Whether it’s just a site about your business or a full-blown eCommerce website, you want to make sure your site is up at all times.

But how will you know?

You can’t possibly check every 5 minutes, that’s a big waste of time. Fortunately, there are services that check for you.

DownNotifier is probably the easiest option available. All you have to do is add your website and your email address. Once you setup your info, DownNotifier does the rest.

If your site goes offline DownNotifier will let you know. The free version checks every 10 minutes. They have a paid version that will check every minute, but the free version should suffice.

That’s all there is to it. If you get an email indicating your site is down, be sure to head over to your WordPress website and see if there are any obvious errors.
