    If you run a website and online business then you have to take care about uninterrupted functioning of your site. You may pay around 30 bucks to a local programmer who will write some short code to check back your site by ping every 3 hours and send you daily reports via email.

  4. I’ve never used DNS Tools, I always use downforeveryoneorjustme to check if website is down or not.
