in Tools & Extras

If you own a blog or a site and you want to monitor its availability on web right from your desktop then you should give a try to Pingdom desktop notifier. Its a free little tool from Pingdom (a website monitoring service) that allows you to monitor a website for its availability on web.

As soon as the site you are monitoring goes down or becomes unreachable, this pretty little tool instantly notifies you about the site unavailability.

To use this tool you need to have a free account on Pingdom. If you don’t have it, you will be prompted you to get one during the installation of this tool.

Once a downtime or site unavailability is encountered, you can get more information about an outage by going to the Pingdom control panel which you can access by simply right clicking the Pingdom notifier icon in the system tray and then clicking “Open Pingdom control Panel”

Great find. The service is good.

This is the least useful feature of a website monitoring service. Do they really think I’m gonna sit near my PC and look at the icon of their application? What’s the point?
Sms/phone notifications rule. They should think more about features that are really useful rather than develop this crap.

Well Alex i agree to you that Phone/Sms notifications are really much better than these kind of alerts. But for those webmasters who used to spend most of their time in front of their PC this monitoring tool is worth trying. I am not sure but they might find it useful!
