Select your host from the ones that are already in your account or enter a new one. You can use either the host name or the IP Address of your website or server depending on your monitoring needs. If you enter a host name like www.domain.com our monitoring agent will perform a DNS lookup with every check. This will slow the monitoring process a little and will increase the total response time recorded by our agent but it will alert you in case there is a problem with your DNS record or with your domain registration.
