I Needed A Monitor To Check Uptime

I needed a website monitoring service for Ice or Fire that let me know if it went down. There are a many options but I only found one that met all of my needs:

  • Free - I'm running this site on a budget so I need a service that's reliable but doesn't cost me anything
  • SMS and Email messaging - I need a service that emails and texts me if my site goes offline
  • Easy to use - I need something simple that I can just set and forget
  • Allows for multiple monitors - 1 just won't cut it


Uptime Robot met all of my needs and did I mention that they have a free option? If you need a bit more they have a cheap monthly plan too. Currently, the free plan is working for me.

Uptime Robot gets a Fire from me!
