Lower check frequency
Lower check frequency for sites that just have to be online, but nothing relies on them. (ex: 1h)
This is now available \o/ (1h and 30m check interval)
Please add 30-minute check rate
The feature is currently being beta-tested by selected users, it's gonna be out for everyone soon ;)

Would also like to see this feature added. Costs are not an issue, but when monitoring dozens of websites the email notifications are. :)
For us the point is that we'll always use small frequencies for production sites but we also want/need to monitor staging sites. But for staging sites we don't want to spend the same budget and hourly checks are really enough.
Totally support this idea! This feature would be especially important for non-commercial use.
In my opinion reduced stats features would be very OK for such lower importance sites (at least in my usage scenario I would mostly be interested in alerts and some overall stats that allow to notice if site is misbehaving). Then in case of getting alerts or noticing issues in stats the monitoring interval could be decreased to get better coverage and all the features.
I guess in addition this interval could be made available only after buying first pack of credits (or something like that)...
