Every webmaster knows the cost of the website maintenance very well - it’s a very hard job, if you ask me. It’ll have all of your time for sure if you don’t find yourself a proper way of doing all the stuff with minimal time consumption. Of course, the most obvious way of doing the job for almost everyone who has a grade at it is using a wide range of scripts and software tools. It’ll require a lot of skill to configure everything and a lot of effort to use it on an everyday basis. So it’s obviously not an option for a beginner though.
But there’s an alternate approach to doing that stuff. You can use an automated service instead of making custom software setups and scripts. I’ve found myself one that fitted my needs - HostTracker website monitoring service. It covered all aspects of the website monitoring, as it’s obvious, giving me access to a vast variety of checks and tests - from SSL and domain expiration validation to data integrity verification and server hardware status overview. You can even integrate API HostTracker provides into your website sequences to make all services even more comfortable for you.
On top of those capabilities mentioned, this platform is supported with an instant notifications system, so it’ll notify you about any issues which were marked as dangerous for stability and accessibility of your website. Of course, it’ll work with any available test, so you’ll be warned about everything. This service can work with almost any existing messaging platform from oldschool Skype and classic Slack to modern Telegram. And if you’re not responding it can send you an SMS or even call you. An instant alerts system is capable of doing even more than that - it can try to reboot your server via POST request and re-test everything before notifying you.
Of course, HostTracker isn’t free for a lifetime - after a registration you’ll have an access to 30 days of free usage before you’ll be in need of subscribing for paid Service Plans. This time is more than enough even for absolute beginners to get into all configuration sequences and other “How to’s”, set everything up and running and then chill out, looking for the results of their work, spending all available free time for other important things. And pros will also find this website monitoring platform useful due to its outstanding capabilities and a large amount of free time that it’ll give to them for improving website performance.
