    @Daz not that I am aware of. Feel free to give this a shot, if you make a working integration I can promote it here. Also let me know if you have any specific questions about the API.

    Haha thank you Davyd, I am glad you find my product helpful :) I don't really want to spend time doing Youtube tutorials if that is what you're suggesting, but people are free to do some tutorials on using updown.io if they want !
    Although I doubt we can compete with this famous song ^^

    This is already possible, both single-side and multi-site status page have the X-Frame-Options header remove to permit iframe embedding. With the additional white-label mode to remove the logo if needed this works well. Are you having trouble with it?

    @Gautier unless I misunderstood something no they don't, even if you configure a custom domain, the check "Alias" or URL is displayed inside the page. The Alias already allows you to hide the URL and display something else instead, but what this suggestion is requesting is to have a different name shown for the public (e.g. like a "public alias") than the one shown privately in the dashboard.

    I suppose you meant "SSL" instead of "SSH"? (I updated the title). The SSL expiration alerts are already sent to the same email selected for check alerts (they do not support slack, telegram and others channels though..) so they are already following this configuration.
    The Domain expiration is not at the moment though (So if this is what you meant I agree it should probably follow the same alert emails).
    Could you please confirm if this is what you meant? your use-case? Thanks.

    Hello,

    Actually 14, 7, 1 is already the special schedule for let’s encrypt certificates. This is automatically detected by updown.io so you don’t have to, normal 1-year certificates get an additional 30 days reminder.

    The threshold for let’s encrypt certs starts at 14 days because the default renew delay is 30 days before expiration: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html. This can be down to 23 days with a weekly cron for example (pretty common) so that’s why we chose 14 days, so you have plenty of time to renew but still have time to investigate and fix any potential auto-renew issues.

    If you’d rather renew your cert only 5 days before expiration that’s up to you but we won’t recommend or support this configuration as we consider it dangerous ☺

    I’ll mark this suggestion as “Under Review” to measure the need for this.

    @Stefan thanks for commenting, the suggestion you are talking about (sometimes also called "pulse" or "cron" monitoring) is actually planned and tracked here: https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/5586072-periodic-task-cron-monitoring.

    The suggestion from Michael here is more about some kind of proxy daemon you could install so updown can access your private network "directly" (which is less likely to happen).

    Numbers like 5 sec will never be added because it needs to be a power of two (this is because we need to store the number of requests under ApdexT and ApdexT*4, so using power of 2 allows to reuse more numbers). So the next values that could be added without causing too much overhead are 4s and 8s. I'll update this suggestion to reflect this and leave it open to measure the interest.

    Sorry but I can't give any ETA as this will depend on the time I have and other higher priority task that comes before. If you are hesitating on switching because of this I recommend staying with your current provider until you receive an update on the status of this suggestion. Or be prepared to keep both tools for a while.

    Hello and thanks for your suggestion.

    The first option you're talking about where you would "refresh" the up status on your end is actually planned for later here: https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/5586072-periodic-task-cron-monitoring (under the name "pulse monitoring", "cron monitoring" and various other versions). I am actually gonna merge these suggestions together so you get the updates from the other suggestion and it adds up your vote too.

    Also as you said one alternative which is currently possible is to expose a small HTTP/TCP service to the outside for monitoring purpose only and configure this one in updown, some of our clients are doing this to "expose" the status of internal services. But I totally understand if you don't want to do this of course.

    In this case what I would recommend would be to use one of the existing pulse monitoring services discussed in https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/5586072-periodic-task-cron-monitoring before updown implements this, and once we do and if you want to consolidate everything in updown.io it should be easy to switch over.

    Thanks for bringing this one to my attention, looks nice. I'm adding it to the list of alternatives in the description too so other people can use it.

    Thanks for suggestion, so basically we would be talking about a TCP + TLS handshake test, the connection would then be closed before exchanging any data. Something like "echo | openssl s_client -connect updown.io:443" ? does this work well with your LDAPS?

    Hi, 2 months ago we started providing canonical URLs so search engines would only display a single result (without the localized version) but it looks like this is not enough and multiple versions are still indexed. We’ll probably add some noindex to help with that.
    On the other end we’re not gonna totally block the indexing of the main status page because this is a feature, being able to lookup a status page when the monitored service is down can be useful.

    Yep, some of this will likely be added. Feel free to also upvote https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972/suggestions/33404443 and/or https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972/suggestions/39625915 for other options depending on what would be best for you.

    Yes, thanks for the suggestion. I also think it may be interesting to only allow public status pages with custom domain (ex status.mywebsite.com) to be indexed and not the URLs on our domain (ex updown.io/ngg8). This way it keeps the client's website hostname visible and doesn't allow to list public pages in search. I'm not saying this a replacement for "hidden" status pages, more like an improvement for this initial suggestion. What do you think?

    What would be the use-case for this ? what would make it better than an hourly check for example ?

    @Adrian that's a different case, this one is already possible by setting an "Alias" for your check.

    Thanks for the suggestion, indeed we didn't write such documentation because usually our users know when they are doing redirections but I understand it could be useful to some. I'll keep this idea open to measure interest.

    @Tony you can use https://tools.pingdom.com/ for example to get a waterfall view of the different redirection requests detailing how much time they took and from which URL you passed by.

    It's also possible with local tools like curl if you're familial with command-line (https://dev.to/yuyatakeyama/how-i-measure-response-times-of-web-apis-using-curl-6nh).

    Unfortunately the library we use to issue requests (libcurl) doesn't provide more detailed timings on the redirection intermediary requests, also presenting this amount of information would be much less readable so I don't think we'll do this but I'll keep the suggestion open to measure interest.

    Alternatively you can of course mesure the performance of your different redirections on your side and if you want to more detailed metrics from our locations you can contact us by email and I'll give them to you.

    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:

    https://updown.io/api/checks/yyyy/downtimes?api-key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx&results=true

    Warnings:
    - 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!

    That's a good point Jimmy, I'll try to add more details to the downtimes API.

    Good idea, if you want data you can already use the downtime API (https://updown.io/api#rest) no special skills needed, just put the url in your browser with your API key and the check token (visible on the status page URL) to get all the downtimes with precise time. You can use a json formatting extension or website to make it more readable if needed.
