I know this is not related to GSA, but I'd love to know if anyone knows of a good free program/service to monitor if a website is live or not?
I need to manage a number of catchall domains. They sometimes get closed down, and it would be easier to see if the website went down, rather than regularly testing the emails.
Maybe something like pingdom, but it only handles 5 websites. I need something that can handle quite a few more.. :-)
but I am afraid for free they would give you a limit on how many projects
but if your sites are on the same SERVER you are good with just monitoring one of them
the monitoring is just a PING to the server it can't tell you if the site has been hacked
so just knowing that the server is alive is good enough
you would need a paid service for anything more than that
just put all your domains in a text file, each one on a new line and make sure you only put the domain name
do not put the http://
it will ping them for you and create a csv file for you with the results.
Just follow the prompts.
i can modify the program to email you with a list of failed sites if you want or if monitor.us is going to work then go that way.
i'll look forward to your ideas on other programs.
