Hello,

If your intention is to monitor your website, you need to depend on a tool that is not hosted on the same webspace

in other words, website being down has many reasons, like:
1. Your server has crashed
2. Firewall at the hosting center has a problem (can be many)
3. Internet pipe to your hosting site is not working etc

Whatever may be the reason, the situation has tend to, your website not being accessible to others.

Here are some hosted services that will help you monitor your website from different part of the world

Webperform http://www.webperform.com/
basicstate http://www.basicstate.com/
Host-Tracker http://www.host-tracker.com

It is also better to have the site being monitored from two different monitors.

Hope this helps
