@mosaic - If you’re looking for something free, but pretty reliable, I would recommend checking out UptimeRobot. You can setup 50 monitors for free and checks will be performed every 5 minutes. This is, IMO, more than enough for any basic website that isn’t hosting what I would refer to as “critical” content.

On the commercial side, and as a more reliable / feature rich alternative, I would recommend NewRelic and their line of services (though it does cost and it’s not cheap).

Thank you.
