About This Class

Everyone with a website knows that, things can sometimes go wrong. Sometimes it is with the code, the server or the network....

Uptime Robot is all about helping you to keep your websites up.

It monitors your websites every 5 minutes and alerts you if your sites are down (actually, it is smarter, details below).

How It Works? The Details

Here are the step-by-step actions of Uptime Robot to understand it better:

  • It asks for your websites headers and gets status codes like "200-ok", "404-not found",
    etc. every 5 minutes (or more depending on the monitor's settings),
  • If the status code doesn't indicate a problem, we are good
  • If the status code is~400+ and 500+, then the site is not loading
  • In order to make sure the site is down, Uptime Robot makes several more checks in the next 30 seconds,
  • If the site is still down, it sends an alert.
