Monitor

If you’re in charge of a website, or a whole lot of websites, or perhaps your job requires you to keep tabs of downtime across certain sites, then Monitor is well worth a look.

Quite simply, Monitor will tell you by email or SMS when any of the websites that you are monitoring have gone offline, and will provide other stats showing you the site’s uptime history.

The free service doesn’t allow you to enable SMS alerts, and also restricts you to syncing your list of monitored sites once an hour. Paying the flat fee of $5.99 per month removes these restrictions and allows your Monitor to sync every five minutes, as well as unlocking a few other features.
