  2. Widget and badge status

    Status pages are really good, but it's sometimes simpler to have a widget to integrate into another site.
    (badges are also very cool ;))

    Yes actually there is an integration with http://shields.io/ planned to provide standard badges to everyone. We probably won’t do any widget though, it’s hard to do one that will look good on most websites. We’ll release read-only API keys in January though, that will allow building highly customizable status page / widget directly in javascript.

  8. Integrates with statuspage.io

    Provides integration with statuspage.io, so your status page is updated automatically when updown detects an issue.

  9. Allow cachebusting URLs

    I use updown to check a url that is behind a caching CDN. If the origin server goes offline, real users making requests for new URLs will see errors, but I will not be notified of downtime: the updown check will still succeed since the URL it is checking has been cached.

    I'd like the ability to add a random string to a URL each time it is checked, so that requests bust through the cache and check that both the CDN and origin server are online

  10. Group identical domain suffixes when ordering lexically

    Right now I have about 20 subdomains across 3 top-level domains.

    The current "domain-suffix-oblivious" lexical ordering is kind of a mess.

    I really wish all my "hexstreamsoft.com" subdomains were grouped together, and same thing for my "hexstream.net" and "hexstream.xyz" subdomains separately. Right now those are all "randomly" jumbled up together based on the lexical order of their lowest subdomain components.

  11. Choose alert recipient with API

    It would be nice to be able to choose which notification recipient (email, sms, ...) to activate/deactivate when creating a check through the API.
    For now all recipients are activated by default.

  12. Add button to fire example webhook to added webhook URL

    Pretty simple, when you add a webhook there should be a "test" button which fires an example event to the webhook URL so the user can test it to ensure it works.

  14. Better expired SSL certificate notifications

    Notifications about expired certificates can be improved (made more noticable) in 2 ways:
    1. Display expired certificates as downtime (or use some other highlighting) in weekly reports (and other periodic reports).
    2. Send repeated notifications for expired certificates (as it is done for downtime).

  15. Make detailed pricing information publicly available (without registering and logging in)

    updown.io is STUPENDOUSLY inexpensive compared to most other uptime monitoring solutions available today. This is obviously one of your strongest selling points.

    So, "hiding" detailed pricing information on the logged-in-users-only page https://updown.io/credits/buy seems counter-productive. I was especially surprised by the big discounts given when buying credits in bulk. It seems to me that a version of this page (or equivalent information) should be made available for everyone, even if they haven't signed up for the service yet or are currently logged out. (This would make it easier for fans to share this information with friends or other prospective users, as…

  17. Multiple email addresses for the weekly report

    I'd like to be able to enter multiple email addresses for the weekly report. For example, certain department managers would like to receive a weekly report of the checks, but not be disturbed every time a check goes up or down.

  18. Set lower bound % for uptime per project

    Let us decide what the lower bound of the uptime % needs to be for the check to be green. No SLA has a 100% uptime guarantee.

  19. Send webhook-event when website is removed

    It sometimes occurs that a website which is no longer hosted by us goes down and has not (yet) been removed from updown.io. When we see a notification about such a website, it is usually removed from updown.io so it is no longer checked.

    Once it goes down, a webhook is sent and a monitoring-system alerts us of this error. If the website is removed from updown.io, there is no event to notifiy our system of this change, so the error persists.

    It would be great if the deletion of a website sends a webhook so your custom system could…
