Distributed Monitoring
Distributed Monitoring Distributed monitoring is a method of website monitoring when the checking is performed from several locations.

Distributed monitoring is a method of website monitoring when the checking is performed from several locations. The main purpose for this is to exclude errors of checking server (which is always possible) from the site statistic and provide more precise result. Usually it is realized through the network of independent servers which check the sites one-by-one or simultaneously. The advangtages of such checks are listed below:

Checks are happening from different locations, just like the real users do.

If a single check fails - others may prove or decline the failure. So, probability of false downtimes is really low.

It is possible to overview the access and download speed from different countries and cities.

Possibility to catch network-related or DNS problems: site might be visible from your computer, but are you sure it works for everyone?

We’re happy to announce that this tool has just got even more awesome! Now you can use our DNSBL check tool as a one-time job or on a regular basis. It means you can keep your IP address in a continuous check against dozens of popular blacklists. 

This can significantly ease your website’s life online, moreover, bring balance into it.

New options

With the new extension of the DNSBL check tool, it's become easier to test your website accessibility, as well as, server message deliverability.

For example, suppose your IP address is currently on the DNSBL monitoring. The moment your website is found blacklisted, our system will report back to you all the detailed information on the check results - the name of the blacklist (which one of the DNS-based anti-spam lists recognize you as a source of spam activity) and the reason for listing (this information is public and provided directly by DNSBL databases).

All this will allow you to quickly clean up “the mess”, speed up the process of domain removal (delisting), protect your business reputation and, by extension, prevent recurrence of such a problem in the future.

HostTracker, as a website monitoring service, always keeps moving forward - our list of DNSBL servers is constantly updated.

The whole setup process will take you only a few minutes to complete:

Some Secrets of Activating Blacklist Monitoring

The good news is that you’re opted to activate the DNSBL check for already existing monitoring tasks. All you need to do is to put a tick mark in the box next to “DNSBL check” field when editing or adding a check task.

Once enabled, HostTracker starts gathering information about your website availability and checking whether your IP is currently listed. A Contact Group for notifications will be automatically added to the current test task. If our system finds your server blacklisted, you’ll immediately receive a message with the relevant information.

We hope that with such a tool you’ll enjoy the convenience, simplicity and quality of our all-in-one monitoring service. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us - we’re always looking for ways to improve!

HostTracker provides a full, digestible look at your website content. Our service will track any changes on your favorite webpages without a need to visit them frequently.

Why is it so important?

Imagine you bought a series of articles for your website and each of these articles should contain phrases - like “choosing the right web host”, “a reliable website hosting service”, “web hosting performance testing” etc. - would you rather do a hands-on check? No, you definitely wouldn’t.  Because you know, it’d be inconvenient and time-consuming! So what should you do? First and foremost, use HostTracker, it will help you to analyze and implement any needed changes to the website content based on what the Check is showing. For activating a new Content Check, fill out the URL of your website (or check ‘Add list’ to track a list of pages), add keywords you want to monitor and set the monitoring interval ranging from one minute to one day. It doesn’t matter which interval you choose for this particular instrument, as you need to hit this check once only. Plus, in case of any website incidents as well as when the relevant data is missing on your website, you’ll be notified at once via email, phone, Skype or other available messenger.

On the other hand, regular checks are also vital. To illustrate, let’s imagine, you’ve got a high performance website that requires continuous monitoring and a ‘Today’s Deals’ option on your page is disappearing from time to time. And right now there is someone who has a need to check your ‘Today’s Deals’ bar, but the website issues are stopping him from camping on your webpage. So could you risk by not knowing what elements can affect your website performance? OR what your visitors are experiencing on your webpage right now? Bet you couldn’t.

Therefore, for those seeking a possibility to check the data on the page, understand what’s wrong and fix the problem quickly without spending much time for diagnostics, HostTracker has developed a Content Check function. It’ll scan your webpage, for example, every one minute and notify you if particular word is missing. Even if your database was unavailable when the backup was running, armed with this tool, you’ll be able to spot your website weak points and the source of the problem at once.

Instrument Settings

It takes a little time to set up a new Content Check. Sign up, then log in to HostTracker’s home page and push ‘Add check’ on the main page screen. From drop-down list pick up ‘Content check’ and wait till the Check window pops up prompting you to fill out the form.

Add the URL, keywords and choose whether you need to track the presence or absence of particular phrases. If needed, set up additional options you want. Finally, click on ‘Save’. Now you’re ready for monitoring!

As soon as the platform detects the missing/existing keywords, you’ll get alert notification with corresponding data provided by email or any other way. HostTracker is saturated with a vast range of messengers to choose.

Don't waste time, improve your website content efficiency with us. Just add your websites and contacts - we'll do the rest! Our service is still developing, so your suggestions in this regard will be greatly appreciated.
