06 Feb 2020 As explained in the last post we've spent a few weeks working on small fixes and improvements, focusing on jobs that aren't urgent but shouldn't be overlooked. Here we'll look at how a few simple code changes greatly increased efficiency when serving pages on the Downtime Monkey website. These improvements focus on reducing the server's CPU load and memory use.

28 Jan 2020 January is a good time for bug-fixing and we've spent the last couple of weeks making small tweaks and improvements to Downtime Monkey. We've focused on the kind of bugs that aren't urgent but shouldn't be overlooked and aim to continue this for a couple more weeks before starting development of the next major feature. We'll document each change in its own post.

All good web hosts provide their customers with a Service Level Agreement (SLA). SLAs often include an uptime guarantee where the hosting provider agrees to compensate the customer if the specified uptime is not met. However, we've never known a host to voluntarily compensate their customers - in reality it's up to the customer to ask for compensation.

07 Nov 2019 We've just made our Pro Plans available to all EU individuals. Previously our paid services were only available in the EU to VAT registered businesses, now they are available to everyone. Read on to find out why... We've always aimed to provide Downtime Monkey worldwide and when we first set things up in 2017 we had a really useful consultation with Scottish Enterprise who helped us hugely by providing expert information on international tax rules.
