Is your website down? Where?
Your website may be down for all or just some of your visitors. When you use the free outage detector, Uptrends sends a request from over 40 of its 227 checkpoints . Within just a few seconds, you know if your website is down for any one of the worldwide test locations. Red response tiles represent failed uptime tests. You’ll know how long each test took, and when you hover over the response tile, you get the connection details.
By the way, do you know you can click thebutton to get a link to your website uptime test? Send the test to your hosting provider to prove your outage or save the results for later.
Is my website down for everyone?
Problem resolution starts with knowing if your website is down for everyone or just users in specific locations or regions. When only certain regions go down, outages are often DNS related, a failed Internet backbone, or a time-out error caused by network latency.
The Free Website Uptime and Availability tool gives you a comprehensive look at your site from a global perspective. When your site is red across the board, you know you’ve got bigger problems such as a DDoS attack, a hosting provider outage, or a hardware malfunction.
Service level agreements (SLA) you’ve agreed to need watching. Automating your website check can help you determine if you have enough significant downtime to jeopardize your agreement. Whether you offer the SLA or agreed to one, you’ve got to track it.
Make good connections
Making a successful connection is half the battle. If the checkpoint can connect and received a valid, error-free response, the client made a good connection. The checkpoint clocks the connection speed and the initial HTML download time. Is your connection failing in the resolve, the connection, or the download?
Use content checks
The automated tests allow you to make a content check. A content check is the last step when checking for a successful connection. If hackers hijack your DNS or your page is responding with content from an unexpected redirect, you need to know. Content checks validate the page.
You know how big your initial download should be, if your download is bigger or smaller, you’ve got a problem. Automated testing lets you validate the page size. It is just another way you can verify that the users are getting the correct content.
Check every minute 24/7
By automating with Uptrends' Website Uptime Monitoring, you get a website uptime check every minute automatically. If your website is down, Uptrends checks again from another checkpoint. If the second check fails too, you’ll know about it.
IPv4 or IPv6?
Our free tool only supports IPv4, but our automated website availability tool supports both IPv4 and IPv6. Most of our checkpoints support IPv6 natively, or they can simulate IPv6. Get the complete list of IPv4 and IPv6 checkpoints.
So, is my website down? We’ve got your answer
You want to know about website downtime. With Uptrends' advanced alerting, you will know. Uptrends double-checks any error and sends you messages on the confirmed errors only. You can set up your alerting to send notifications using just about any tool your team uses: SMS, email, phone/voice, Slack, PagerDuty, StatusHub, VictorOps, ServiceNow, or your own custom webhook.
If the first alert doesn’t fix the problem, Uptrends can escalate the alert. Tell us whom to contact and how. Using error escalations, change the notification methods, add other people, and include other teams if an error condition persists. Uptrends will also send reminders until the problem gets fixed.

Your HTTPS uptime monitors have a little trick; when your page errors, if possible, Uptrends takes the response and loads it into a browser for a photo session. You can find the screenshot in your check detail report. You see what your page looked like at the time of the error.
