Free 5 Second Online Site Check Service
is hosting a quick online site check tool newsreports.org
as a public service.
Very simple to use. Just input the name of the site to check.
The tool returns a site status, the time taken for the remote
response and the raw http headers.
Know for sure before posting in the outages section
whether the problem might be your own connection.
Very handy for those times when you just need a quick
verification that a site is up.
The http headers are helpful if you just want a quick
The time measurement tells you if the site might be
heavily loaded at the time of the test.
A great tool to bookmark for help desk technicians, to feature
on your support pages, or to point out to your clients.
No registration, no membership, no money, no limits.
Just a bookmark.
Remember, you might not need it today. But, it's going
to save you a lot of headaches someday. So remember to
bookmark the site.
Try it now at newsreports.org
ps. please let me know what it looks like on mobile devices
It looks ok on my Blackberry. Although it would definitely look better if the input form were to be at the top so I don't have to scroll down. Does the tool probe the page from several carriers (haven't checked the website stats for the probes yet)?
I was wondering about the placement of the input myself. That can definitely move.
It probes from one right now. It might go two, but certain problems would have to be overcome if the user is to get a response "RIGHT NOW!"
The server is on a multi-carrier network though.
BTW ... Thanks!
Just realised screenshots are allowed, so
