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!
- Uptime Robot offers 5-minute checks and 50 monitors for free 👌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...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.
