10 Excellent Web Services to Monitor Websites Uptime

It’s crucial for every site owner to monitor website uptime, otherwise visitors won't come back again if the site is always unavailable. If it is high traffic website then it becomes more critical to monitor website up-time, because we cannot monitor website all the time. Sometimes it happens that websites are going down even if we have a very reliable hosting provider with 99% of uptime. The reason could be with network outages, data center, server outages, server overload, DNS configuration, or SSL certificate problems. In this case we should be aware of such things, otherwise we could lose royal visitors and followers, if website is down for hours (or days).
