Hi Experts,

After seeing many free website monitor applications available I wonder if someone can suggest a good & free app that will alert me when a website is offline or performing slowly... like taking a super long time to load pages etc.

Anyone have experience with a good free one?
(Windows Vista)

Thanks
HNM

Are you hosting the website yourself? Most webhosts have integrated monitoring as part of their control panels... this is why I ask.

Thanks for the effort folks,

It's shared hosting and nothing in the control panel, I can't monitor inside the network, and the montastic product doesn't indicate a slow site.  Picky... I know.

Thanks anyway!
