      What is Apex Ping?

      Modern uptime and performance monitoring for websites and APIs, with rich reporting, flexible alerting, and competitive pricing. More than just HEAD requests: choose an HTTP method, headers, and body for any request.

      What is Pingdom?

      Pingdom is an uptime monitoring service. When problems happen with a site that Pingdom monitors, it immediately alerts the owner so the problem can be taken care of.

      What is StatusCake?

      Monitoring a website is one thing – finding the best way to alert you to downtime another. At StatusCake we give you as many options as possible to decide when & how often you’re contacted. Whether it’s by email, SMS, push notifications for iOS & Android or integration with third party apps including Zapier and PagerDuty – you decide how you want to be alerted and when!
