#!/bin/sh
if ! wget --tries=1 --spider -O /dev/null mysite.com >/tmp/wgetlog.$$ 2>&1
    then
      mailx -s "Error occurred with  mysite.com" XK8ER@domain.tld < /tmp/wgetlog.$$
fi
rm -f /tmp/wgetlog.$$
exit

Run it via cron on a regular basis.

You can use next script:

if ! wget --timeout=60 --spider -o /dev/null http://mysite/index.html
then mailx -s "timeout error with http://mysite" user@email
fi


This will check URL and you control the timeout in seconds. Notice that timeout can be DNS lookup delay, connect dealy, and read delay.
