    So lately one of my websites was going down a lot but I'm not there 24/7 to check if its up or not. It's the host's fault btw. I wanted to know if there are any free services that can monitor my website and tell me if it was down or not. Also, I'm using wordpress so maybe there are plugins for that?


    Regards,

    Thanks man, your rep is back to 10 :)

    The host is bluehost. I didn't hear any negative comments about them so I guess there was just a site that was being ddosed on the same server as mine was, but w/e, just to be sure I want to monitor the uptime

    If your site gets traffic every hour on the norm, you can just login to awstats and look for holes or unusual drops. If your site was down more than an hour you can usually see it in the graphs.

    Also check in cpanel and click on the bandwidth icon. These graphs will show you exactly when your sites received zero traffic. If you have consistent traffic you can easily see when your site was down.
