Ok BHW has helped me find great hosting deals, and mostly reliable providers. But now I have a couple dozen websites on 5 different hosting providers. What tool do you use to be sure all of your websites are up?

I have one dead now, and I have been sending emails with links in it for 2 days. Just another chapter in my education I guess.
 
This one:
Code:

I would like to test 20 sites, once or twice a day at a minimum. Also, it needs to check some form of content. It is possible that some decision I made did not age well, and they have this message on my site : This Account Has Been Suspended.
 
sounds like your looking for

basicstate.com is good..I believe you can even get sms verification if u really care..
can have it check every X amount of time
 
Setup a quick webpage with like 20 iframes, you can open the page, refresh and see which ones are up and which are down.

Love the simplicity of this solution, i was going to suggest a pingable script / monitoring utility, but for a newbie your solution is fantastic.
 
i use basicstate.com as well. it does a good job for me, but only has either 15 or 30 min intervals at max without paying, but sounds like that is all you need. I'd hit them up, I have about 30 sites they monitor for me, very reliable
 
Thanks, basicstate is great, but it does not let me check the page contents for key phrase or something to let me know the site is my page, and isn't being re-directed to the "suspended" page.

you'll probably have to write a custom script for that, one that looks to see if a particular variable is on a page.

is it a linux / PHP based server?

As he suggested, a multi iframe page, or a iframe that loads with timeout / interval is surely the basic solution to see if your own sites are loading for you with your own dns.

to see if they load from other networks you may combine it with a proxy.

If that's not enough you will have to dwelve in bash scripting or in uptime service monitoring
