    @Frank if you publish your status page you can then share the link for read-only access to unauthenticated people.

    Indeed that's a classic problem but it's better solved using the standard Cache-Control header to disable caching, and this one can already be set on updown.io using the customize request form (</> icon).

    @Mario As a first iteration, I've just reduced the white-space of the status page substantially (160px).

    Thanks for feedback, the problem with the prefix idea is that people will stop using it, and I'll end up with broken/ugly pages branded as updown.io all over the internet ☹

    Your suggestions are interesting though, I've already been asked for custom logo and may implement this at some point. About company colors it may be possible but again probably not a good idea if people replace the green with red for example :/ it may make the page impossible to understand. Which part would you have like to re-color?
    And finally about the whitespace I'll try to improve that on the existing design!

    This most probably won't happen as we don't want to have 100 different designs in the wild and risk breaking them when we do changes to the status page. Why do you feel the need to draw more attention to the translation dropdown? it uses browser locale by default so almost nobody would ever need it actually. About the whitespaces do you think there are too much is specific places or you just want to make the whole page more compact?

    Interesting, as an alternative currently you could define aliases on your checks which mention the top level first and subdomain after (ex: "hexstreamsoft / mail") to have this kind of ordering.

    Ok then you're not looking for the TTFB but for the server response time (in green on updown.io status page) this one does not include connection and handshake, though it still includes the network latency in addition to the server time as we can't get the exact server time from a remote location. But if you look at the number from a close location (small connect time) or if you subtract the connection time, you can get a pretty good idea of the server only response time.

    Response time does include the download but it doesn't include the connection and handshake time, whereas the TTFB from chrome does include these but not the download time. As this is server to server the download time is most of the time negligible, unless you're bandwidth constrained, so the number you're interested in would be the total time.

    This one is not included in the dashboard because it's very location dependent of course and showing and average may not be very clear, whereas on the status page as there's the detail per location it is clearer.

    Do you think we should put something like the total time average in the dashboard? when you say dashboard are you talking about the status page or the list of checks in your account?

    What do you mean exactly by "the timing to the first response" ? Which number would it be from the detailed timings chart? (ex https://meta.updown.io/)

    Thanks for your feedback, I just wanted to point out that with the recently added bulk update interface (https://headwayapp.co/updown-changelog/bulk-update-notification-recipients-54559) it's much easier to edit this kind of things.

    Hello, raw access is already possible using the API: https://updown.io/api
    Using the /metrics endpoint you can get the apdex per host or per hour for any timeframe you want (minimum resolution is hour though). History is kept forever but aggregated, so you get per-hour data for at 1 day, then per day data for a month and then per month data.

    Do you mean HTML5 desktop notifications ? this is a good idea indeed but impossible to realize without a Push API. This will come in the future though (realtime update of the website) so at that point it'll be easy to add desktop notifications.
