It’s time for another Data Doctors Tech Tip.

Do you have a website? Many of us do these days, whether a blog, small business or a bigger company. Your website is the easiest way for people to find your business.

If you can't answer those questions with 100% certainty, you need to know about

UpTimeRobot, monitors your websites every 5 minutes, and it’s totally free.

Once you sign up for your free account, you can monitor up to 50 websites.

You can even get alerts by e-mail, SMS or Text Messaging, Twitter, RSS or push notifications for iPhone/iPad.

Now if any of the sites that you’re motoring take a dive, you don’t have to worry about someone discovering it hours later and maybe letting you know, or assuming someone else already told you.

If you don’t think that happens, guess again, it actually happens in businesses of all sizes. If you run an e-commerce site, you know how much money that can cost you.

The UpTimeRobot dashboard is easy to read, so you can see the history of the site and see if there are any repeat problems you need to know about and deal with.

We said it before, but it’s worth repeating. UpTimeRobot can monitor up to 50 websites and it won’t cost you a dime.

We’ve got the answers to your technology questions.
