    Inexpensive remote sever monitoring


    We are looking for a simple service whcih will send email and cell phone notification to ping our server to detect if the server goes down or is unreachable. We looked at RED Alert but it is expensive amd ffer more than we need.

    Any suggestions?

    I currently just use

    5 bucks a month for 5 monitoring services. checks every 5 minutes.

    They won't text your phone - just email. But I pay 2.95 a month for unlimited incoming email messages on my phone. So I just have siteuptime email my phone basically.

    The phone has a 150 character limite - but all you need is the subject anyway.
