The worst thing that can happen to your business is your website going down during a busy period, and not noticing.
In our last blog, we talked about what happens when website downtime hits at the precisely wrong moment: not only do you lose money from customers who are just trying to get their shopping done, but you might also lose your customer’s trust, your Google ranking, and worst of all, all the hard work you did to make your website what it was in the first place.
While you can’t avoid website downtime forever, there is a way to make sure that its impact on you is minimal, and that’s by using an uptime monitoring system. Software that keeps track of your website’s uptime makes it easier to reconnect when a service blip happens; more than that, it makes it easier to anticipate any scheduled downtime and move them to moments where your website is a little quieter, and where business won’t be as affected.
The website monitoring system that we recommend is Netumo.
There are other website monitoring systems out there, but we know that Netumo works exactly as it’s intended, provides you with ample time to react to website maintenance, and doesn’t miss a trick when it comes to making sure your website’s running the way it should be.
How? We made it. And we made it with years of experience behind us and with an eye for what you really can’t do without in a website monitoring system.
Netumo: An Overview
Netumo is a domain-tracking and website uptime monitor that’s designed to keep you updated wherever you are about how your websites are running – and it doesn’t just monitor whether your website is running only, but it also keeps track of when your domain registration is about to expire, lets you know if your SSL certificate is out of date, and also keeps an eye out for websites and hosts that are available for you to use.
Here’s some other features in Netumo:
- It has a free tier so you can try it out before you buy, which allows you to register one domain for monitoring.
- It comes with status pages for your customers.
- Added HTML and keyword content verification double-checks for errors so that your website loads the way it’s meant to.
- Availability reports so that you can see how your website and hosts are performing.
- Instant notifications, everywhere: email, SMS, Twitter, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Telegram notifications are included.
Best of all, you only have one console to view: no more logging into multiple systems to get the same amount of information or to manage multiple domains.
You can pre-set how often your website is checked, and Netumo does the rest for you! And it logs your data so you never need to worry about your website uptime ever again.
Why should I use Netumo?
There are a few reasons why you should use uptime monitoring software.
- If your website is struggling with unexplained downtimes, figuring out what’s happening and when it’s happening is crucial to understanding how to fix it.
- When it comes to your users, it’s best to keep them constantly in the loop and having a status page dedicated to seeing whether or not your website is online is a key aspect of this.
- The longer your website stays offline, the longer that you lose out on business, and if it goes down at a low-traffic time, it could be a while before anyone realises – and even longer before you can fix it.
- It’s easy to forget to renew certificates if you have a lot on your mind.
Netumo detects over 900 outages a day, meaning that over 900 websites a day can be saved from unnecessary downtime.

We are happy to say that we have over 5000 happy clients with Netumo who write in often to request features for the software. We have a lot of great ideas for Netumo, and we’re hoping to keep building on client satisfaction to create an unmatched uptime monitoring service.
Should I use Netumo?
Uptime monitoring is one of those things that you invest in before a problem happens to prevent a problem from happening. Using Netumo just means that, in the case of any issue with your website, you can catch it before it causes any monetary or brand damage to your company.
As a software as a service provider, we stand behind the idea that preventative computing is better than reactive computing, and putting these things into place before a problem can save you a lot of time and money later.
