When managing multiple websites, apps, and extensions it is important to know when a site is down before your users have to alert you. Currently, I use UptimeRobot to monitor all my websites etc. It’s a great service that offers uptime checks and will alert you by email or text. It’s free for up to 50 sites checked every 5 minutes. You can even ping servers.
Recently I noticed they offer free status pages which can be public or password protected. Within a few minutes, I was able to create a public status page for my weather extension. Setup was pretty easy after adding the CNAME to my domain in Cloudflare. So now status.weatherextension.com will display the current state of my API, homepage and weather provider. Currently all checks are 100%!
