SiteLog

Allow me to open this article with a quote from the 2010 movie The Social Network that still sticks quite vividly in my mind:

“If those servers are down for even a day, our entire reputation is irreversibly destroyed! Users are fickle, Friendster has proved that. Even a few people leaving would reverberate through the entire userbase.”

If you operate a web service, uptime is vital. Even more vital, however, is knowing when your services go down so you can take action.

SiteLog is a web app designed to help you monitor the uptime of your websites and/or servers, very simply. By just typing in an address and choosing which service you want to monitor, you can easily checkup on the website’s current status, as well as that of it’s HTTP, FTP, IMAP, and more, no installation required.

Quick Look: SiteLog

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting SiteLog. The developer describes SiteLog as a simple and easy way to monitor your website’s or webserver’s services (FTP, HTTP, SSH, etc.). Most solutions for monitoring your servers are way too hard to setup and/or maintain, and also rarely affordable for most people. That’s why we decided to develop our own SaaS (Software as a Service) for that, so you don’t have to install anything and don’t worry about having to monitor/manage the monitoring tool (redundancy intended)!

This service is great, simple, easy and more than enough for over 95% of people who need to monitor servers, because it doesn’t require you to install anything on the server (it won’t check your load or memory usage, but we have some very helpful scripts available for free to help you out with that if you need).
