Website availability is crucial to the business success.
When a site does not load in few seconds, we feel frustrated. Can you imagine for a moment about those visitors who even cannot access your site while downtime! Such moment can hurt credibility, revenue, reputation, site traffic as well as it can harm SEO.
It’s impossible to stare monitor 24/7 to see our website. This is why we should consider using “Uptime monitoring” tool called Pingdom for checking our website availability.
