Handling Downtime and Outages

Posted on May 30th, 2016 by Damien Jordan in Monitoring

Is your site down? We all have experienced outages and downtime and we all know that this has quite a negative impact on our business and reputation. Unfortunately, downtimes and outages cannot be completely avoided, but can be quickly detected, thus minimizing the negative effects. All we need is a very good tool, which will help us identify even the shortest server overloads or network glitches.

First of all you have to be prepared to handle the situation. Knowing the configuration specifics of your website / server / third party hosting panel is crucial if the problem is on your side and can be fixed by you.

Using our services gives you another option – our Takeover feature. It allows you to leave detailed instructions that our support team will follow in case of a detected failure. You might want us to contact your hosting provider and report the problem, give us credentials to SSH to your server and manually reboot it (if possible), etc.
