Uptime Robot sends HEAD requests for HTTP monitors and GET request for keyword monitors by default (and, this is a good default setting for most monitors). So, here comes the HTTP method selection which enables us to choose the method, send the parameters to be sent (if needed) and also decide if the data will be sent as JSON or not.

There is never “too much” when it comes to the ways of getting notified about an emergency. And, in some cases, this emergency can be a website or server going down. Today, voice call notification is added to Uptime Robot and it can be very helpful when we want to make sure that a notification is heard :).

Uptime Robot sends notifications for down and up notifications by default for each alert contact type. However, there can be cases where you may only need the down or up notifications.

Uptime Robot supports multiple methods to get notified about downtimes on mobile (SMS, push notifications via the mobile app, Pushbullet, Pushover or Boxcar). And, SMS is one of the most reliable notification methods specially when no data plan exists.

Getting the notifications inside the team communication app you use can make things easy as this may be where you’ll be discussing how to make that website/server back online.
