Domain name registration expiry notice33 votes
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.
Change Slack webhook integration to Slack webhook URL (so other services which can emulate Slack's parsing to use this feature as well)
Instead of making the Slack webhook integration via the API, just allow users to put in a Slack URL. That way any other service which can emulate the Slack webhook schema can use the webhook feature.
As an example Discord has webhooks and if you add "/slack" to the end of a Discord webhook URL then it will parse the data as Slack does.
Currently I cannot use Updown with Discord. I also suspect that many other programs have an option to parse data like Slack so you could knock out a few webhook integrations in one simple step.10 votes
Work on this is starting soon
Add phone number to SMS to exclude from Do not Disturb mode. During the night my iPhone is within "DND" mode and the updown.io service does not send a phone number. I am not able to exclude the messages from the DND mode because I need to create a contact for this which is not possible because there is no phone number10 votes
We started moving away from the “updown.io“ alphanumeric sender ID to a regular number but this will take time as we need to make sure the deliverability stays good in every country
You can follow the migration here:
If your country isn’t migrated yet please contact us so we can send some test SMS to verify deliverability with you.
Maybe I overlooked it, but is there a log of the incidents available? Simply a text list of the times when a website went down, and when it was up again.130 votes
Hello everyone, I’ve just added a way to get the detailed results from the last 5 checks before downtime and recovery to the downtime API, all you have to do is add the “results=true” parameter, like this:
- This API is alpha version, it can still change.
- The response can be huge, I recommend using this only when needed and with http gzip compression if you can.
- The dual stack results (IPv4 and IPv6) will NOT repeat “body” and “received_headers” if they are the same as in the parent result record, to save space.
Let me know what you think!

One of our users is currently working on non-official Android and iOS apps working with the updown.io API. You may be able to use them soon ☺
