  1. Localized public status page

    It would be great to provide localized versions of status page based on user agent language (i.e. russian, german etc.)

    • Allow using POST method for monitoring

      I’d like to switch to monitoring my API endpoint with updown.io, but the primary endpoint uses POST. Being able to provide custom headers is certainly nice, but being able to customize the request further (i.e. method and submitted content) would be much nicer. Site24x7 which I’m using now lets you provide form data and even check returned value for specific JSON fields.

            • Multiple slack integrations (more teams/channels)

              Integration with more than 1 slack team or channel, so I can use one updown account to notify multiple teams for shared servers.

                • Lower check frequency

                  Lower check frequency for sites that just have to be online, but nothing relies on them. (ex: 1h)

                  • Status page on own domain

                    A way to integrate it into my site (similar to statuspage) so I can go to status.mysite.com and see a version of the public status page.

                    • Basic webhooks

                      It would be nice to have webhooks. It's quite common to have them in services that emit notifications. It's a great simple way to hook up some third-party services. Since it's a simple URL to "ping" it's not as coupled and hard to do as proper integrations.

                      • Other types of check: Ping, SSH, DNS, etc.

                        This would allow a more precise monitoring of other pieces of infrastructure.

                        • Account sharing (company)

                          A company could create one account and add coworkers to it. People would still authenticate using github or google auth. It may use google apps / github company to automatically create/suggest company accounts.

                                It would be good to have more PoPs, especially in regions not yet covered like Asia.

                                    • More frequent status checks

                                      Say every 10 seconds. Perhaps with a restricted set of monitoring locations if that is what it takes to achieve this.

                                      • More historical APDEX data

                                        We would like a longer history of APDEX data so we can show one of our providers and keep them honest.

                                        • Affiliate Program

                                          Love love love updown's service! Would love to see affiliate program or refer a friend link. I run a marketing blog with quite a bit of traffic and would love to write up a review. Will most likely be writing one anyways, but I think you could spread the word faster if you hit up bloggers with an incentive.
