For larger websites, monitoring server uptime is a must.
Server uptime refers to the time during which a server is operational– the ability for your hosting and web server to keep your website online and reduce downtime.
Why does website uptime matter?
Website speed and stability are crucial for search engines to index your website regularly and properly. If your website experiences significant downtime, you could experience ranking decreases and push users away from visiting.
How can I check server uptime?
You can run a free check using Pingdom.
If a site is experiencing ongoing issues, Pingdom offers a paid service option to monitor the site in real time.
