ruzee.com is currently hosted at my home, in my small computer and visitors room, using a DSL connection. Until you as one of my visitors reach my site, all the data has to go through a DSL modem/splitter, a NAT/Firewall, a 4-port switch, and finally the server itself. Loads of components that, well, might crash, get disconnected, etc.
But, fortunately Montastic exists. It frequently checks your servers for their availability. It does that approximately every 15 minutes – so you won’t get real-time data, but hey it’s free! If something is not o.k. (or working again), Montastic sends you an e-mail.[tags]server, monitor, availability, montastic[/tags]
