Can somebody tell me what's the best free website monitoring application I can install on our windows server ?  This application should  be constantly running on the background and check if each website on the host is up and running. When one is not working for a certain time (like 5 minutes), it will send out an email to the host master.

    is this for a site that is public to the internet...
    If so, how about this
    or a
     whole list of external services  via the site below (internal tools are provided as well)...

    Hi and thanks for the reply.

    These sites require you to include them in your websites. I was looking for more like an application type of solution.

    Do you know by any chance ?

    Don't quite understand by what you mean by "These sites require you to include them in your websites. I was looking for more like an application type of solution. "
    Do you mean a piece of code needs to be included in the site to point back to the service?
    Scoll down a little past halfway for application based tools
