Add Chinese monitor location
The response time to Chinese server (located on Alibaba or Baidu for example) is very slow for non-Chinese clients.
While I understand the need, being in China is a lot of work (mainly support and maintenance) as the network conditions are erratic and with out current double check policy would not actually notify if your website is unreachable in China (unless we have two servers here and become a regional monitoring service but that’s not the objective and we can’t just do that in every country). I’ll keep the idea open to measure interest. Also if some of you have recommendations for a dependable and affordable hosting provider in China I’m interested.

Hello, I suggest that a China checkpoint is a medium priority. I have two services we provide globally and china has some specific routes and although there is Singapore and Japan they are not that relevant to be honest as China has their internal network infrastructure more tightly controlled. Best wishes and keep going !
