  1. Man this is great… But how it works? I guess they ping every website from time to time… Takes a lot of time for each and every site dough.. Puzzled… Thanks!

  2. I think that’s exactly how it works. If you’re going to ping each and every site on the internet, that would take a lot of resources. They only ping sites upon request so as of now it’s just a few. You can always unsubscribe if you no longer want any alerts/notifications. Once unsubscribed, my guess is that they stop pinging your site. 🙂

  3. Yeah i think so… Upon submission from users they add it into queue.. Hope they have good resources because if the queue builds up they will have some outages for sure..
    While it is new and relatively unknown everything is fine..

  4. @EverybodyGeek: SiteUpTime looks like a useful service as well. I’ll check it out too. Thanks for the tip. 🙂

    @ShortApps: Yeah, sometimes that’s what so great about new/beta sites. There are still few people using them so downtimes are likely less to happen. Unless the startup is a big hit right away, you can expect a fast service while it’s new. 🙂

    @Gerardo: Thanks for the comment. 🙂
