12 monitoring locations around the world
You can select to monitor your website or server from up to 12 different locations around the world, which results in a very good downtime detection accuracy. We are working with several different hosting providers in each of our monitoring locations in order to ensure that our platform will continue to perform as expected even if some of our hosting providers experience outages or network issues themselves. Each one of our monitoring locations is configured to have self-healing and automatic load balancing tasks, which means that even if one or more of our monitoring nodes experiences issues, they'll be temporarily put out of workload assignment and your websites/servers will be checked only by the healthy monitoring nodes within that particular location.
Extremely accurate outage detection
Unlike most of the Uptime Monitoring services out there, that check your monitored target from just one location and will only re-check it from other locations if the main location fails, our platform is checking your websites/servers throughout the minute from all of the selected monitoring locations (up to 12 different locations). This way we are guaranteed to get the fastest outage detection time while having the maximum accuracy possible, given the fact that the outage is simultaneously confirmed and re-confirmed from multiple locations around the world.
Insightful Uptime Reports
Each one of your Uptime Monitors will have a neatly organised Uptime Report, which will contain all of its history, such as recorded outages, errors, response time, etc. Every Uptime Report is private by default, which means that only you (as a logged in user) can view it, but you can also choose to make it public and share it with your colleagues or clients. We offer an unlimited uptime history in all of our plans, so you don't have to worry about losing your uptime data over the years.
You may have to power off or reboot your servers from time to time, and it's always better to do it as planned rather than unexpected. So we've implemented Maintenance Mode just for such cases, when you need to put your Uptime Monitor on a sort of pause. Unlike most of the other Uptime Monitoring providers out there, our system doesn't pause monitoring under Maintenance Mode, it just marks it differently in your Uptime Reports and optionally pauses alerts sent to you regarding any detected outages. This way, even under maintenance, you can always see whether or not your server or website is up or down. Furthermore, you can even schedule maintenances ahead of time or trigger them via our API from your own system or panel.
Location Fail Log
Logging the exact encountered errors
Every time any of our monitoring locations encounters an issue with your website or server, they log the exact error at the exact time it happened, in your Location Fail Log. This is a powerful tool that could help you determine the root cause of any outage, and see how the outage progressed throughout the minute(s).
MTR/Ping samples during an outage
Whenever an outage is detected, our platform immediately dispatches tasks for our monitoring locations to collect MTR and PING samples towards the monitored target, which are then logged in your Network Diagnostics. These are neatly stored in your Uptime Report for you to review and possibly help you figure out what the root cause of the downtime was, if this was a network outage or issue.
Domain Expiration Monitoring
It's always a good idea to monitor all of your domains' expiration dates, to make sure that you're not caught by surprise by one of your websites going down because its domain name has expired. Our platform offers a simple solution for this, monitoring by default all of your Uptime Monitors' domain names. Furthermore, you can even configure alerts to be sent out to you X days before any of your domains are about to expire.
SSL Expiration Monitoring
Even more important than domain names, you should always keep an eye on your SSL certificate expiration dates, as these can cause some nasty errors for your users. We offer a simple solution, as our platform will monitor by default all of the SSL certificate expiration dates of your Uptime Monitors. And of course, you can also configure warnings to be emailed to you X days before any SSL certificate is about to expire, so you can renew it in time, before it gets to cause any issues for your website visitors.
Monitor your SSL's authenticity
You can configure your Website Uptime Monitors to check whether or not your SSL certificate is valid, authentic, and matching or not your hostname. If any of these checks failed, you'd be alerted so that you can quickly fix the issues before your website visitors encounter any SSL errors.
Nameservers Change Detection
It's never a good sign if your domain's nameservers are suddenly changed, without you knowing about it. Your domain could have expired or even worse, could have been hijacked. So it's always a good idea to monitor your domains for any unexpected nameservers changes. Our platform will monitor this for all of your Uptime Monitors, by default, and you can even configure alerts to be sent to you whenever we detect any nameserver changes for your monitors.
Search Auto-Complete & Search Cloud
You can easily search through your Uptime Monitors based on their name, monitored target, category, and private notes. Our platform offers an auto-complete search feature in order to help you get faster results. The auto-complete suggestions will be based on multiple factors, among which, your most searched terms. Furthermore, you can enable Search Cloud which will keep your most popular searches as labels on top of your dashboard, so you can quickly one-click them at any time and bring up only certain monitors to work on.
Never miss an outage alert
You can configure repeated alerts in case of an outage, so you can be absolutely sure that you'll never miss that initial alert. Our platform will keep nagging you with alerts until you acknowledge the outage by placing the monitor under maintenance mode, or until the outage is over.
We are using HetrixTools to have a global view on our gaming server network, why lose time to develop a tool when Hetrix managed everything for us?
I've been using Hetrix Tools for 5ish years now.. free package 3 monitors one for each IP i have pointing to port 80 so as to emulate normal traffic with a telegram bot for intimidate warnings for down time. Never had a false positive .. NEVER and the up time monitoring for a free service is just.. stellar.
Guardian Hosting has been utilizing StatusCake over the past few months to monitor our servers uptime. Recently, we started to use HetrixTools to monitor the network of our cabinet. We're currently on the free plan, just testing the uptime of one of our IPs, and we also use the free IP blacklist tool to ensure our IPs don't get blacklisted. Luckily by using this tool, we managed to find out that every single one of our IPs that were allocated to us were blacklisted, and we found out easily had those delisted. Now, we use HetrixTools to ensure that we can show our clients a report of us maintaining a good network uptime, and a tool for us to make sure our IPs don't get blacklisted, and if they do, to get them delisted.
The service has been great to monitor our own servers as well as our clients servers and their broadband connections for uptime.
HetrixTools has been nothing short of excellent. It's continually developed and improved upon, quickly reacts to changes and notifies our staff of any discrepancies. The API works great as well, and the service is affordable beyond belief compared to what it offers. Keep it up!
Great tool to monitor in Internet our company reputation and maintain defense against attacks.
We have been using HetrixTools platform in order to monitor our significant amount of IPs throughout all our network.

@HetrixTools , your service absolutely rocks! Thank you very much! #servers #monitoring #DevOps #Linux
We've been using another monitoring platform since our inception. We stumbled across HetrixTools monitoring whilst searching for a blacklist monitoring service and are glad we did. The feature set and pricing point is amazing and the documentation and support are fantastic.
As we are growing rapidly with our cloud servers, and adding our own ARIN IP range, HetrixTools keeps us ahead of major issues. Knowing an IP is blacklist, and quickly troubleshooting reduces support tickets, and increases customer satisfaction. After some research, I truly believe that HetrixTools the most cost effective solution to manage blacklists.
We use Hetrix to manage our IP Blacklist status and then process the de-listing using the dynamic links. We came from another provider, great service and great price.
Easy to track and monitor all, all in one place, same like Hostiso services, we love simplicity, easy to use and most important correct information.
Excellent Monitoring Tool. Easy to use interface. Very prompt notifications through many channels. An indispensable tool for Server Admins. Highly Recommended.

Encontramos em HetrixTools uma maneira simples e eficiente de obter dados sensíveis de nossos servidores gerenciados. A interface é limpa e tudo é intuitivo, e isso é maravilhoso.
It has been a great service so far, I used to use mxtoolbox before and shifted to hetrixtools for about a month now. I find hetrixtools better and accurate with additional blacklists than mxtoolbox.
I will add a higher plan and shift all my IP checking to hetrixtools shortly. Keep up the good work (y)
We've been using HetrixTools for a few months mainly for our public facing status page for our clients as we believe in transparency. The reports are really useful and extremely accurate, the best we've tried so far.
Although we are mostly using it for our clients to see, it's been very useful internally amongst our team too. We love how it also allows us to change the status message at the top at a moments notice very quickly if something went wrong i.e. one of our servers went offline, scheduled maintenance etc.
We would highly recommend this company for any business.
I been trial the service for long time and I found that it is reliable, therefore I am moving away from Pingdom as they aren't what they used to be.
Elixant Technology has been utilizing HetrixTools for both Blacklist and Uptime monitoring of our IP ranges. Up until we started using HetrixTools we would spend countless hours each day checking our ranges IP by IP to ensure we were clean. Now, every day we receive notifications like clockwork letting us know if something is out of the normal! Not only has this made things easier for us, but also it gives us peace of mind every time we add more IP space to our network.
Experience has been good, easy to use, navigate around the platform... Good way to keep an eye on IPs.
It will help us keep spam from our hosting to a minimum.
HetrixTools allows us to ensure that all customers have the best experience possible, and root out those who abuse our network.

As we are in the hosting industry, sometimes we have clients who abuse our network. We use HetrixTools to monitor our IP's to see if we are on any of the blacklists. HetrixTools does the job, and it does it very well.
I would just like to leave a mini review for this service as it is excellent! Their control panel is very easy to use, IPs are monitored automatically, and you are notified of any changes IE when your servers go offline and come back online again.
It is well worth the money. We are using the Business Uptime Monitoring package.
Support even let me know I forgot to update the title on embed code and suggested me to change the background colour so it blended with our website better, which I forgot to do been as I was revamping the whole website.
We use both HetrixTools's Blacklist monitoring and Uptime monitoring services now.
I have been using the HetrixTools platform to monitor my website's uptime and my network's uptime in Dallas. I have also been using it to monitor about 300 IP Addresses to keep my network clean for my customers. I used this for 1 month then stopped, but I plan to use it long term now because the pricing is so great.
We've gone through several server monitoring solutions but weren't able to find something that met our needs. This changed once we started using HetrixTools. The platform proves an eloquent solution, monitoring our servers & displaying our status to customers has never been more convenient.
Both our employees and customers derive value from the clean and simple public status page in order to troubleshoot issues and identify potential problems.
On top of this, interactions with the HetrixTools team have been very pleasant - they are fast to respond and provide solutions.
We use HetrixTools to monitor all of our servers and websites. We've been using many other services before, but none of those have fulfilled our needs like HetrixTools did. We saved a lot of time compared with other tools, it's just so easy to setup! The reports are very accurate and the WhiteLabeled Report page works like a charm! All in all, HetrixTools is the best solution on the market for monitoring Servers and Websites for both Individuals and Business.
We've been using HetrixTools to make sure that the servers, our site and our customers' sites operate on are never down or have blacklisted IP addresses. We even configured HetrixTools to tell our team through Slack if something ever goes wrong. It's an intuitive platform and great for automated checks. We'd highly recommend it to anybody.
We use it for blacklist monitoring and uptime monitoring. This service has been a big help to us by getting notifications when our servers are down or an IP of ours is on a blacklist.
We use HetrixTools to monitor our entire infrastructure. The Opsgenie integration works seamlessly to alert our team to any downtime, and makes HetrixTools a fantastic platform for us.
We've been monitoring our IP space recently for the past 4 months and found the service to be invaluable in ensuring our customers don't have issues with email deliverability. This company provides a valuable service at a reasonable rate compared to some other larger names out that charge much much more.
We at Ertomedia use HetrixTools to monitor all the hosting servers for our client's website and the results are satisfactory. Plus there is also the option to customize the status report in accordance with our brand is a value added compared to other services.

HetrixTools provides us with the insights critical in maintaining a favorable reputation across all of our platforms and throughout the internet - the Slack integration are a massive bonus that keeps our team in the loop without disrupting regular work flows.
The uptime monitor has allowed me to get instant notifications of down time. HetrixTools sends me notifications before my hosting company even realizes there is a problem. This has been invaluable on keeping our systems up and running. Our employees are able to work within our extensive Intranet with minimal downtime.
Knowing an IP is listed, and quickly troubleshooting reduces support requests, and increases customer satisfaction, HetrixTools provides us with the tools and reports that gives us the time to react much more efficiently than other similar services.
That, translates to even more satisfied customers and better reputation for our own services.

Using it to monitor uptime and track resource usage of customers managed VPS and Dedicated Servers. Also tracking IP addresses for shared hosting servers in the blacklist monitors.
I've recently begun using the HetrixTools platform to monitor my email IP addresses to minimize the impact of blacklisting as well as website monitoring to be alerted in real-time of issues with my websites.
Just wanted to say I've been meaning try your services since you launched and just got around to it last week... I'm testing with the free tier and I'm super impressed! Your company has exceeded my expectation and IMHO better than your competitors. Honestly, surprised to see this great of a service in so little time. Keep up the great work, I should be upgrading sooner than later to professional!
HetrixTools Blacklist Monitors helps us keep an eye on activities from our dedicated servers, VPS cloud and datacenter colocation customers. The regular updates really go a long way towards helping our techs stay pro-active in detecting possible outbreaks and notifying customers of issues that require their attention.
We are a small team who maintains heterogeneous dedicated servers for our customers. HetrixTools flexibility and Telegram integration is great for our needs. Plus, developer response is awesome when required a new feature for Server Agent.
HetrixTools provides us with valuable external monitoring that we can trust. The analytics logged during outages prove extremely valuable in determining commonalities between issues to aid in resolving the underlying issue(s) faster.
We use both of your premium services for our business. Everything is clean, simple and very professionally designed.
Love the new features with @HetrixTools where we can see how long our #nvme drives in our server has been used for and how often it has been rebooted.
HetrixTools has been a lifesaver. We've tested other platforms, but we always come back. The pricing is great alongside a very reliable platform that is easy to use as well. Being able to have separate accounts for all our employees and specific customers, allows us to be transparent while providing access when required.
