  15. questionCan you monitor slow load times?
    The way our monitoring works is not exactly like an actual web browser. We don't load all the images and/or dynamic elements (flash movies, etc...) We just send a Head request and/or a Get request that returns text content only. So it can be difficult to replicate slow loading in a browser which ...

  16. questionDo you offer a way to display my uptime on my web site?

    Yes, we offer a maintenance or blackout schedule where you can automatically suspend your monitoring. This can be done for a specific period of time daily, weekly or monthly. You can set this up in the "edit" section of your monitor control panel.

  19. questionDo you send alerts for each check period?
    No, sorry for any confusion. We do not send an alert each time we check your website if the website is up. We only send an alert if we receive a failed check. This alerts you to the start of an outage. Then we send another alert (up alert) at the end of the outage.
