    Hi,

    I dont know if this is the correct place to open this thread but i am really paranoid
    because sometimes my site goes offline due to highload in order to make my site online again i need to restart my vps.

    is there a Desktop Alert Notifier if website is down? is there any?
    i have tried pingdom but if there is a website down alert notifier in desktop with alert sound or anything please tell me. thanks


    thanks in advance

    Idk why you need a desktop alert. Most services are email you when something is wrong.

    Pingdom.com is pretty good. They can send email and sms alerts. Not sure about 'desktop alerts' though.

    Yes, we at desktopalert offer a solution that will ping your site and send you a desktop alert, popup, email and phone call when it happens. We would need to tweak our solution to accommodate your need but sounds interesting. On another note, I think there are free email services that will do this for you.

    I use pingdom too. It's free for 1 site. They also have an Android app with notifications which is better than desktop notifier.

    Write a script wich will refresh the site every X second and pin the tab in your browser, with a javascript alert/sound when your site fails to load.

    If you are looking for a program that will alert you when your website is down, I can develop one for you for a small price.

    (I may appear new here but I'm on another major forum "NGU" same username.)

    If you are interested in desktop alert s/w. I can build that for you.
    S/w will show 1) popups 2) send email 3) sms to your phone whenever site is offline.
