Beat S., Marketing Consultant
5 stars rating

Using for over 7 years

The features of the Uptime Robot App & Dashboard are excellent. Since we have begun working with them for several years now, there have been no problems. Everything is simple to set up and utilize, which is great for our business's digital marketing efforts and the numerous clients we serve.

The personnel is courteous and really helpful, and the customer service is excellent as well. Absolutely no complaints! Great Application.

Great app for outside monitoring

We've been using it for more than half a year now and not long ago have bought a paid subscription. Great app design, a lot of monitoring customization features, huge amount of alerting pipelines ranging from email and push notifications to pagerduty and even telegram. And on top of that a wonderful support service, who helped find a couple of solutions for a problem just within 24h. Definitely would recommend.

Great product reasonably priced.

It is nice to know that my sites are up and you can't be the pricing. I run several sites for clients and it is a good feeling to know that their sites are up.
