Webhook notifications

Finally!

Now you're able to setup webhook notifications for your sites.

Just put the link of your webhook and we'll send you POST request every time your site becomes online/offline.

Monitor Tags

Now you can add tags for your monitors.

It is useful for quick filtering, especially if you have a lot of monitors. Later on, we plan to go further with tags. For example, adding monitors on status pages based on some tag.

IPv6 Support

If it happens that you have IPv6 address we now are able to check its uptime as well as we do for IPv4 addresses.

Even though it's not that popular some users asked us to add this and we did :)

Custom domains for status pages

Now you can setup custom domain names for status pages.

In order to do that you should create a CNAME record in your domain DNS settings and point it to app.pingr.io

For example, if you you want to display status page in status.mysite.com domain, the record should look like:

CNAME status app.pingr.io

Pay attention that the first time you open the status page it'll take some time to generate SSL certificate for your domain, so it'll take a little bit longer to load the page. This will happen only on first load.

Status page incidents!

Finally we have deployed status pages incidents.

This is kind of standard feature for status pages when you need to display what has been happening with your services for the past few days. In our case we displayed incidents for the past 30 days.

Later on we'll add an option so that you users be able to subscribe for incidents updates via email. Stay tuned!

New monitor setting

It happens pretty often that your site is down for a minute or so, due to some temporary problems.

We know it's annoying to get spam notifications like when your site was down for a minute and then instantly recovered.

That's why we added a special setting. You can now setup for how long your site should be down in order to get notifications.

Status pages update

It's been quite a long time since we have published any updates. The reason is we've been working on gathering some analytical data for future use.

So, right now we collect such information as:

  1. Historical uptime for every hour without any limitation. At least for now we're able to keep the whole history for years, later on we might change it to one year
  2. Historical response time for every hour
  3. Breakdown of response time for every hour, including such things as DNS lookup, time to connect etc.

We haven't yet finished integrating this into the design, but first steps are done. This is how the public status pages look now:

We're going to put much more information here and in monitor overview soon!

  1. Fixed bug related to access to public status pages

Some improvements based on your feedback

We're keep on working on fixing bugs and improving UX. Today we've published some changes based on your feedback!

So, here they are:

  1. Since there were two "Notifications" links which might have been confusing, we renamed user notifications to alerts. Alerts is where you get notified if something went wrong, while monitor notifications is the way we notify you about outages

  2. We have explicitly shown where the monitor notifications settings so that you don't miss them

  1. We added "View Status Page" button for your convenience

  1. Removed highlighting of monitor list items since it was a bit misleading because there weren't any actions related to this highlighting

  2. Fixed broken logo in password reset email

  3. Changed the look of "Edit Profile" button which is now easy to spot

We're starting a changelog

Big news today, we're starting a public changelog so you're always up to date with all the updates, improvements and fixes that are made in Pinger.

Even though we work on Pinger all the time, sometimes it may seem that not much is happening. This changelog is here to improve that very important part of the communication between you and us.
