As a single maker, when your app/website goes down how do you get notified?

I'm a single/solo maker & interested in the tools fellow PH'ers use to notify them it their app/website goes down, without paying crazy fees. I use PagerDuty at work but can't justify the price for a side project.

    I rely on Hyperping to let me know if my site is up and how performant it is. Works great, and the price is fair!

    Hyperping is great! It sends a report every week to keep me updated about the performance of my sites and notifies me of downtime, like yesterday with Netlify's outage.

    • Been using Hyperping for two weeks now and it has already paid off.

      We were having random downtimes during the day and Hyperping helped us figure out the problem. No false positives, simple reports, simple alerts and reliable monitoring. Couldn't recommend it enough.

      I've been using this to monitor my apps since mid-December 2017. Leo shared a screenshot of it in the WIP.chat Telegram group we're in, and I was hooked. Really great so far!

    Great service, and can't beat free! If a check every 5mins is not enough, they have options that check more frequently. Also, they can notify you however you want; via e-mail, SMS, Twitter, Slack, HipChat, Telegram, push, web-hooks...

    I've used pingdom for my last 3 startups... It works fine. It's not a product I love but a product that gets the job done.
