We think the real question is why are they so expensive? Some of our competition are either running their systems much less efficiently than we do, or they are charging you many times the cost of running the service. Monitoring should not be costly.
If you use more checks than is included in your plan, the additional checks will be included in your next payment. We only count active checks for billing purposes. A single check provides monitoring for one service, such as a single web site, or a single email server, and so on. Checks can run as frequently as once a minute.
Subaccounts allow you to segment your checks into groups, and provide access to specific users to just one subaccount. This allows you to provide a login for your customers to access just their checks. See the features page and the documentation for more details. Subaccounts work especially well in conjunction with the API and with branded sites.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, JCB, Discover, Diners Club, American Express, and PayPal. We charge the subscription to your chosen payment method automatically on a monthly basis in advance. Any overages for the month will be charged the next month. There is more information about our billing in our Terms Of Service. We will also accept PayPal for those who would like to pay 6 or 12 months in advance. There are other options for large volume customers, ask if you have more than a few thousand checks.
In the vast majority of the world Unlimited notifications really does mean we'll send you Unlimited notifications. However, the delivery of notifications is not completely under our control. If your email server isn't working or your mobile phone is out of range or your mobile provider has problems, you may not receive the notifications. Some regions of the world are easier to deliver SMS notifications and voice calls than others.
You may incur additional charges for delivery of notifications in some parts of the world, depending on your local carriers, and there may be some locations to which we cannot as a practical matter reach you for notifications. Our unlimited notifications policy is intended to make sure you receive notifications from all actionable events on our checks. We may decline to send notifications that appear to be spam or other misuse of the notification system.
Checks are run from a random location within your chosen region. Provider accounts can specify a location to run their checks from as described in our documentation.
We support using a custom domain for your status page and reporting. For example, we use status.nodeping.com. In addition, if you send us an SSL certificate (we will provide you a csr on request) we will install it for use on your custom domain so that your customers can access your status page and other reports with confidence. There is a one time $150 fee for this setup.
