Latest Features

We’re excited to announce the new features coming in our next release of Server Check, our free server monitoring software.

We’re introducing a Server Check SMTP option, which means that you can use our SMTP system for server and website down alerts, instead of having to use your own. While using your own SMTP server will still be an option, quite a few of our users have requested an easier SMTP solution that doesn’t rely on having their own SMTP servers. The Server Check SMTP option will be available in all versions of Server Check, both free and paid.

We’ll also be adding a search bar to the toolbar which will allow quick searching for monitors – essential if you have hundreds or even thousands of monitors deployed and you need to find one of them without endless scrolling. Now you’ll be able to check your server status even more efficiently by finding it instantly with the new search bar.

We’re also tweaking how Server Check monitoring and uptime status web pages load to optimise their loading times, as well as improving the error information when testing a server or website monitor.

Look out for the new release of Server Check featuring all of these new features and improvements – coming very soon!

Server Monitoring? What’s in it for me?

One of the most frequently asked questions amongst IT admins is: “How should I monitor my sites and servers, and what should I use?”

One of the advantages of using Server Check for monitoring websites and servers is that it does what it says on the tin. It checks your servers and websites, and other web-based services like FTP, SMTP, MySQL, etc., without being overly complex.

There’s no coding required to get Server Check up and running, and no complicated monitoring parameters to insert into the monitor check. It’s a bit like a “plug-n-play” monitoring system: 1. Add your website or hostname, 2. Give it a name and decide how frequently you want it to be checked, 3. Let Server Check get on with the monitoring.

We make reducing the amount of time your servers and websites are down a breeze. Server Check will send email and SMS alerts as soon as it detects a problem with any of your monitors, and it will then keep checking them until they are restored or become available again.

So what’s in it for you? Well, instant alerts so that you know something’s wrong. Would you rather find out there’s a problem from Server Check or from an angry client or customer? And a quick setup means that you could be up and running with Server Check in about five minutes, and all for free.

What else is in it for you? Total reliance on yourself, and no one else. Server Check monitors sites and servers from your own systems, and you can easily run it from multiple locations including remote data centres. This means you’re not relying on a third party to monitor your valuable assets – you can do it all in-house.

Give the FREE 10-monitor version of Server Check a try today, and let it do the monitoring so that you can get on with all the other important stuff!
