    Although this would be fun, we don’t have any time / money to invest in this for now. We already provide fast and robust SMS notifications and the website is mobile friendly for stats viewing and administrative tasks. It might happen in the future but don’t expect it anytime soon. Some of our clients started working on a third party app but no news yet. If there’s one I’ll let you know.

  3. Add a "Does not contain" option

    The content on the site may vary a lot, but it should never include words like "exception" or "error", which is what we want to check for.

    Sorry but this won’t be added, we consider it to be a bad practice as this would miss most actual errors returned by your servers and drastically reduce monitoring quality (which would then be blamed on us). If you don’t care about the content present, just don’t use this feature and rely on standard HTTP status check.

  4. Time range/blocks

    Nice to be able to monitor on specific time windows

  5. More options for content-checking

    e.g.
    - Support for New-Line-Chars
    - RegEx's checking

  6. Add 15 minutes and/or 20 minutes check intervals

    I understand the drive to keep the number of options small, but to me there is pretty clearly a "hole" in the available check interval options.

    For reference, current interval options are:
    15s, 30s, 1m, 2m, 5m, 10m, 30m, 1h

    My "standard" checks for important stuff use a 5 minutes interval.

    I'm looking to lower my costs by using a larger interval for some of my less important stuff, but right now my only options are the 10 minutes interval, which is not really going to save me enough money to be worthwhile, and the 30 minutes interval, which would…

  7. Cookies

    It is currently not possible to check websites which place a cookie on initial visit. It would be nice to have an option to enable cookies.

    What do you mean by that ? if you want the check to be able to fill out arbitrary form and submit them to authenticate, then store the session cookie and use it to check another page, this is never going to happen in updown.io. If what you mean is being able to send a custom Cookie header with the check request, this is going to be added soon (custom headers).

  8. Different check frequency for time and day

    Would be great if we can assign different heartbeat frequencies for different time slots and days.

  9. Force re-check

    A check for one of my sites is set on 10 minutes, but I got a timeout error. I fixed it and I would like to re-check now to confirm that the site is back up, without having to wait 10 minutes for the next scheduled check. After the forced check, the next check would then be 10 minutes later. So basically just speeding up the next check.

    Perhaps, as an anti-spam measure, only accept a forced re-check if the last check is more than 30 seconds ago.

    This is not an interesting feature for everyone so we won’t add this to the interface. Though if you need to do it some times, you can alter the URL or string match and set it back, changing this triggers a re-check.

  10. Lots of checks, less often

    I'm looking for website checks (404 and other error results vs normal) for a lot of uris, like tens of thousands, but then, not that often. Like every uri once a month.

    updown.io isn’t suited for this kind of monitoring, the pricing wouldn’t justify the storage costs and all charts and numbers would break. Though we can probably build a small custom tool for this and host it for you if you want. Send some details to support@updown.io if you’re interested.

  11. Alert after N periods

    In order to avoid false alarms, it would be great to have a per-check variable to define how many failed pings to wait before alerting.

  12. Add more time intervals

    It would be cool if you also could time intervals like once per day or once per hour since some domains are only important for the SSL monitoring for me.

  14. Add ability to shorten check confirmations

    It would be great if you could have a check that checks every 10 minutes, but when it starts failing you can have do the confirmation checks every minute.

    At the moment (I could be wrong here) if I have it set to check every 10 minutes it would take 30 minutes of downtime for me to get a notification.

    Actually the confirmation checks are twice as fast, which means that with a 10 minute period, you’ll be alerted 10 to 20min after the downtime started (and only for downtimes longer than 10 min)

    If you check every 10m it means a downtime up to 10m is acceptable. Running confirmation checks faster would mean being sensitive to downtimes smaller than 10min.

    If you want faster alerts, you need to select a faster check interval, there’s no point in being notified in 2 min if you check every 10 minutes anyway because If you care about a 2 min downtime at 12:00, you should also care about a 2 min downtime at 12:05 too ;)

    In the end, we chose to keep a precise balance between sensitivity and frequency so you can’t be notified for a downtime randomly, this is important because with a 10 minutes interval you can miss a…

  15. Create WHMCS Module For Selling and Displaying Uptime In WHMCS Client Accounts

    I love updown.io, but UptimeRobot has got WHMCS dialed in. You guys should get in that game. Make a module that allows us to display updown uptime monitoring in the WHMCS client area. Not sure where you guys are in the as far as the reseller market goes, but you can also add functionality for reselling your service to our WHMCS clients and make bank. Think of how much more exposure that would be.

  19. Javascript browser tests

    It would be cool to have more advanced browser tests that could test javascript.

    It already happened to me that my javascript file couldn't be loaded (come cache issue) which resulted in an unusable website until we realized the javascript had crashed and all menus were unuseable.

    Some services can scripted browser tests so we can verify some javascript interactions actually work. Would love to see that on your app.

    Unfortunately this is much more expensive and super unreliable so we’ll never use it for the main monitoring. Though at some point we may add some side features to try your website in a browser from time to time and let you know if it breaks for some reason but that’ll only be warning notifications (like we do with SSL alerts).
    And most importantly it won’t be configurable, as this would require a very complex setup which is not in the updown.io philosophy

  20. Open sourced service

    When out of beta, you could offer a Unix service client added to the monitoring rack to download and install on the user's server if they want it.
    That could result in something like "pay for updown or host a server".
