Response Time Monitoring
Response time monitoring Response time monitoring is testing how fast is your site.

Response time monitoring is testing how fast is your site. It might be accessible, but bad performance can still make it unattractive for the clients. The monitoring of the response time allows you to check how the site acts as the time goes on. Do any of the scheduled tasks, like backup, updates etc affect the performance? Does the site works well for the whole world, or some regions of interest could meet a confusing delay?

HostTracker provides a possibility to check the reaction of your site. Select Response time check on the main screen:

Create ContentCheck Task

Then, select the largest satisfactory response time for the site. Is this value is exceeded, you receive a notification. Also, all the statistics is stored in the check log, and response graph is generated. You may check this data at anytime.

NOTE! Response time depends on the distance between the datacenter of your site and our checking server. It might be large enough for a remote country. To decrease this effect, select a checking region in advanced options.

HostTracker offers numerous simple-yet-powerful instruments to keep your website running smoothly. That implies it delivers deep insight into server resource parameters such as CPU, RAM and HDD. How does it work? Starting at collecting statistics, cloud-based service lets you know at once about CPU, memory and disk space usage issues and provides the way to speed up your server performance. Read on to find out more about “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD” tool, and why you should adopt it.

Who are your neighbours?

Nowadays there are many services and tools around that can help with all sorts of server issues. For Windows and * Nix you can find special scripts that are very easily installed. However, the sets may vary depending on the server configuration. For example, if your server doesn’t support some basic functions, one way to deal with this - to create a script based on the tools provided, which will convert the data output in a specific format for further system manipulation.

But let’s not forget about server virtualization. Virtual hosting has been into trend for a couple of years and boasts numerous advantages over resource management. If this is your thing, then “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD” function from HostTracker will definitely come in handy for you.

Sometimes it can be hundreds of different websites simultaneously hosted on a single server. Therefore, server may get easily overloaded or stop working properly. With “Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD”, you’ll be able to strengthen your server performance against some common causes of overload and spot out your “load hungry” neighbours. It’s worth noting - one of the biggest drawbacks of shared hosting is that your server IP can end up being blacklisted due to the dynamic allocation. In essence, if your neighbour’s IP from your IP block is currently suspected of hosting illegal content, your IP address can get into a blacklist as well. That’s why it’s crucial to keep a constant watch over bad neighbours to ensure that your business reputation is safe.

Rapid increase in the CPU load, memory and disk space usage may indicate that your web server has been infected. "Monitor CPU, RAM, HDD" can help you in this regard and protect the security of your resources.

User-friendly interface and other advantages

With our user-friendly and responsive interface all information about your server performance and settings is a stone’s throw from you. Therefore, for example, the needed script should be downloaded and run once only by the responsible administrator, subsequently - all actions can be specified using HostTracker’s account. Moreover, our cloud-based website monitoring service provides a wealth of different checks to choose, from HTTP and Ping tests, to database and server  parameters checks - all these let you gather the most complete information about your resource performance for further thorough and accurate analysis.

Additionally, HostTracker has a wide variety of notification types to offer ranging from Viber to Telegram. It also provides the ways to customize your own group of contacts for notification as well as pinpoint short outages. As regards statistics – it is available anytime you want:

In particular, the screenshot illustrates that the server CPU load hasn’t exceeded a specified threshold of 90% during the day. However, the value of this parameter has fluctuated over the period. It shows that, most of the website visits are during the day, that’s why the CPU level is lower at night.

API and Post-requests are up for grabs too - you can freely set the automatic server reboot, cache clearing etc.

We are always open to new ideas and suggestions whether relating to existing instruments, or submitted by technically-minded and creative people.

The nasty reality of expired domains

Here are a few reasons why dropping a domain name, even if it is fast recovered, is not a good idea:

  1. A heavy drop in search engine rankings and coming traffic.

  2. Undermined credibility. When it comes to domains there’s nothing worse than your domain name taken by others and used for malicious purposes. Yep, you got it right, domain hijacking is real! And once you’ve got your domain expired, you become very vulnerable to this kind of threat, yet you can’t guarantee safe user experience. This means you risk to lose your customer info, brand reputation, and money as well. Well, but that’s not all… What about your potential customers? Few would disagree that another important reason why many people are prone to abandon the particular website is its accessibility. No doubt, no one likes to wait. And if it comes to making a purchase online your potential customer will wait only 3 minutes prior to leave and never come back.

  3. Financial losses. Say, you’re the loyal client of particular bank or stock exchange, you’ll be definitely really upset to discover that you can’t check your financial info as the service seems to be down. Truly, the Internet is littered with tragic examples of how big companies including banks dropped domains and run into financial trouble because of that.

Let’s take a second to think about how hard it is to stay on track with the domain expiration. Actually, it's not quite that easy at all. Suppose you’ve got about 100-300 websites and even more email addresses. Moreover, every day you’ve got your Inbox bombarded with tons of different emails. Obviously, it’s really easy to scroll on some important information such as a reminder from your registrar in such a hectic situation.

If you don’t want to curse God for your memory lapses, consider jumping into some of the awesome monitoring tools like Domain expiration from HostTracker. With this tool in place, you won’t need to rely on your registrar. As you will be notified 30, 7 and 1 days before (and even after) the expiration of your domain by email or direct message.

Enabling notifications

Here are 5 simple steps to set HostTracker for sending you alerts of the impending domain expiration:

  1. Sign in.
  2. Upon successful login, navigate to Add check -> Domain expiration.

      3.  Enter your domain name or click on Add list if you have multiple domain names.

      4.  Click on the check boxes to select the contacts for notifications.

      5.  Click on Save when complete.
