I bought one of the basic reseller accounts and host a couple of sites on it for local businesses and have a couple of subdomains for me to play with. There is plenty of diskspace and plenty of bandwidth, were talking about helping friends out rather than major business !
At the moment I have two sites giving 500 Internal Server Errors, one site saying 'Page not Found' and one site with Google saying it doesn't exist. All domains are active (and done through 247 Hosting again with recommendations from here).
Last month JoneSolutions suggested I use intoNDS and at the moment it doesnt appear to show any problems (although I'll be honest some of what it returns means nothing to me) but I cant access the site.
So my question is what should I be using to monitor these sites to be notified when they are down ?
I'm just looking for something simple to start with so I can at least find out where the problem is and I'll start looking deeper as I go.
