    Website monitoring, are you willing to pay?

    Hey fellow webmasters,

    I would like to get a survey who are interested to pay for a website monitoring to check your site, pop, smtp, ssh and ftp every 15 minutes and alert you and your host provider thru email if there is problem or downtime, and the price is $5 a month per URL.

    or

    Buy the script for $150 and setup as many URL to monitor and host it to a share hosting so it can monitor your sites or servers.

    or

    Go to free monitoring service that monitor per hour and check only your site, without checking pop, smtp, ssh and ftp and place ads to the weekly email report.

    Please tell your opinion and post your poll.

    Thanks

    Personally i wouldn't pay for what seems to be a very basic service that monitors at 15 minute intervals when there's several good free services that will monitor at 30 minutes (some even 15 i think)

    I would pay for a good monitoring service providing it was much more frequent, ran from more than just one server and location and included at least SMS alerts. hint - see alertra.com

    siteuptime,com seems to be rather nice, you can have 3 free monitors and they have page for public view. Had it on for a few days so far.

    Everyone loves http://www.hyperspin.com/ for low prices. If you could make at least analogue - IMHO a lot of people ll grab it.
    One of main question, what kind of in/pub stats you ll sugest. Ping time isnt leading feature.

    If you need just a pinger (for simplest in the world stats), you can simply "ping -i 60 www.domain.com >> yourfile.txt" You have prety "nice" pinger, which ping ANY port ANY rhythm of time for free.

    Why pay for something you can do better with a free program like Nagios?
