  1. Add the ability to disable following redirects

    Currently updown.io will follow 302 redirects when checking if a service is up. In the curl commands that are emailed when downtime is detected, this is achieved via the -L flag. It would be good if this could be disabled, so that the actual endpoint given is tested and not the endpoint at the end of the 302(s).

    An example of when this might be useful: I have a few endpoints that simply 302 to another endpoint, which I don't maintain / own / have any control over. I'm less interested in whether those endpoints are up, and more interested…

  3. STARTTLS check for SMTP servers

    Ath the moment SMTP ports may be checked for responsiveness but not for valid connections. Interesting would be:

    • check if there is really a SMTP server
    • check for STARTTLS
    • check for valid certificate / expiring certificate
    • check for MTA-STS/DANE

  7. Turn the webapp into a PWA (Progressive Web Application)

    I believe the effort to turn you application into an webapp is pretty low (just include the manifest.json into the project root), and that would enable the users to install the website and use as an app.
    It would also open some doors for future development:
    - Send push notifications from web
    - Offline access (yeah, this is kinda weird for you product)
    - Improved caching
    - Auto-updates straight from web (this is in comparison to native apps)

  8. More Bulk Options

    It would be useful to have bulk editing options for the "check interval" and "monitoring locations".

  9. South America checkpoint

    Hello, I suggest that a South American checkpoint is a priority. I have (among others) websites in Spanish and Portuguese, and although Spain and Portugal are in Europe, the majority of users in these languages turn out to be from South America. If you need a VPS in Brazil, I can recommend Virtuaserver (I had a good experience with them), or there are many others. Best wishes and keep going.

    First part of this feature has been deployed (the one fetching expiration dates from whois database) but the problem is there’s a lot of mistakes in this process because it requires parsing free-text from all different TLD whois format (which is not standard). So we’re currently making sure the data is correct (at least when we have it) and improving the parser with the values we see in the wild, to ensure we don’t send any false alarms about this when we enable the alerts (also implemented but disabled for now). Knowing this, if you want to try anyway we could enable the alerts for some beta testers, let me know.

  12. Custom Logo

    I think a custom logo has been suggested before in a comment (https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/33892252-custom-css-for-public-status-pagess), just wanted to raise it a suggestion now

  13. Show QUALYS SSL Labs Grade

    Show somewhere on the status page, the SSL Labs grade for the monitored host. It can be get trough the API, like https://api.ssllabs.com/api/v3/analyze?host=updown.io (it could be tested once a day for each host)

  15. Customise (on/off) Default Notification Channels

    I would like to set which Slack Alert Channels (but this idea applies to all notification methods) should be default on or default off.

    I have a couple of channels I need just for specific high priority notifications. I don't want them accidentally switched on for every updown.io entry that is added

  18. Allow cachebusting URLs

    I use updown to check a url that is behind a caching CDN. If the origin server goes offline, real users making requests for new URLs will see errors, but I will not be notified of downtime: the updown check will still succeed since the URL it is checking has been cached.

    I'd like the ability to add a random string to a URL each time it is checked, so that requests bust through the cache and check that both the CDN and origin server are online

  19. Negative monitoring

    I would like to have checks which fail when something is there which shouldn't be there. For example a http endpoint which should only be available through https.

  20. Order by status and disabled checks

    I like ordering checks by status having the "down" first.
    It would be nice, in this view, to have the disabled checks at the bottom of the list.
