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.

    Uptime monitoring made beautifully simple and reliable

    Ken WallaceFounder of Β· Written
    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.

    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...
    Bruno PaulinoSoftware Engineer Β· Written
    It is super reliable and the free version allows you to have up to 50 monitors. they can notify you in pretty much all services out there like Slack, Telegram, SMS and the list goes on and on. Have been using it for the past years and had no issues at all.

    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.

    I was like you, needed a reliable uptime monitoring tool and was using monitis, but they suddenly increased their pricing. I made mine, Pingmeter. Let me know if you signup to get some PH benefits from me on your account ;)
