What

An internet site monitoring service is an item that enables site owners to be aware what the performance of the website is. Generally, it simply simulates the procedure that a normal user would do in order to access the home page of the website. The time it takes to complete the bond will be measured. A security will be sent via email or texting if there is an issue.

In more complicated cases, there could be a test purchase or test transaction performed to be able to test a lot of systems. This will be more complicated for the customer as well as the monitoring service to implement. However, this is a good way to thoroughly test an internet site with an entire sequence of transactions.

How

When utilizing a website monitoring service, they frequently provide more details than the time needed to access the website. For instance, the service will frequently include the timing of each single HTTP request to the website. This is a good method to determine which area of the connection is slowing down the experience for the user.

In many cases, it may be an HTTP request to an external website that is causing the problem. This can be the case with advertisements on a website that go to the advertisement network for rendering the web page. If that happens, it may be best to temporarily disable ad serving on the website or to get the advertisements fixed as fast as possible.

Where

There are a number of companies that do website monitoring service. One of the things that consumers should do is to do some comparison shopping. Of course, price is going to be a very important criteria, especially if more in-depth monitoring such as simulating a transaction will probably be done.

The other thing to look at is the diversity of the monitoring sites. It's really a good idea to have several monitoring sites in different parts of the world. In some instances, an outage may be caused by the Internet service provider or an intermediary provider, especially if there are long distances. It's also a good idea to have monitoring in parts of the world where there are many users.

When

Taking care of that companies need to look at with respect to a website monitoring service is granularity in the monitoring. Certain areas may only check every five, ten, fifteen or more minutes. That may not be sufficient when a ten minute outage may cost a lot of money.

You will find monitoring services as well as monitoring packages where the scanning takes place a lot more frequently such as every 30 seconds or every minute. This is a good way to ensure that a website outage will be noticed faster. The worst thing that can happen is for an outage to happen just after the last check, and the next one isn't going to occur for the next fifteen minutes.
