Website
Website Website is a basic unit of information in the Internet.

Website is a single resource of information in the Internet. Usually, it is realized through a set of web pages, devoted to some specific topic. The pages are written in special markup lenguages and may contain various types of data - applications, audio and video files, images etc. The site is hosted on a hardware server and can be found in the Internet by unique name due to DNS. The access to a website usually provided by HTTP (hyper text transfer protocol), or its secure version - HTTPS. This protocol provides possibility to deliver information from the server to a client, who is usually viewing the pages with the help of special application, called browser.

"To have a record of up-time of a Web site seems a very important concept. So what you offer seems interesting."

HostTracker — Sites Monitoring Service

Every site owner knows how important it is to have your resource always operative and available for visitors. Periodical site unavailability has a bad influence even at its positions in the search engines (as Google representatives have repeatedly claimed), not to mention the fact that visitors are extremely displeased by such “accidents”...

How to be always aware of how properly your site is operated in real time?

HostTracker is an online website monitoring service, having rich functionality and good feedback of the customers, who are, by the way, more than 25 thousand (including the resources of such companies as Colgate, KasperskyLab, Panasonic etc.).

The job design of this service is the following: at certain specified intervals your websites and servers will be checked for availability and serviceability (the verification is performed from around the world), and in case of any problems you will receive notifications about the problems. In addition, uptime statistics for each site is collected, but it will be discussed later.

A quick site serviceability check may be performed directly from the service main page through typing its address in the upper right window and selecting one of the verification methods:

  • Http – website pages loading check
  • Ping – the server availability check (pinging)
  • Trace – the server availability check (tracing)
  • Port – random server port check

According to the check results a detailed report will be created on a separate page.

To become the HostTracker service client and verify the uptime and serviceability of your resources on a regular basis you need to register in the system and assign the appropriate tasks. Over time detailed statistical reports and visual graphics will be created for each task, greatly facilitating data analysis, outputing them in an understandable representative form.

Site failures and problems may be reported to (at your option):

  • Email as a letter
  • telephone as an SMS or a call
  • Skype or GTalk as a message

At that it is possible to set the notifications delay, their uploading time etc. – the settings are very flexible. By the way now I really miss such functionality at Monitorus, as it sends an SMS immediately when a problem occurs, regardless of the time of day, and as you can imagine, late night may be very fun because of this).

Another useful feature of the HostTracker service is the site content monitoring. You may set a list of the page keywords, at the disappearance of which you will receive the notification. Or vice versa – set a list of words, at the appearance of which you will receive the notification. The first case, for example, is good for paid links on other sites monitoring, and the second – to prevent virus activity in the form of additional code embedding on your website. Say, it is very helpful and very convenient!

Now a few words about the HostTracker site monitoring service rates prices. There are several service plans, differing in the maximum tasks number, check frequency, etc. However, there is also a full-featured trial period of 30 days, as well as the Free tariff, within which you may monitor up to two resources with an interval of 30 minutes. That’s not much of course, but as an option to try out all the features for free, and then decide on the appropriateness of the paid tariff transition, it is just the job. Good luck!

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 the most popular blacklists. 

Previously, we have introduced one of the “Check site instantly ” board functions -  DNSBL - which helps you find out whether your server is blacklisted before it gets out of control.

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!
