    I have several websites being hosted by different companies for different reasons.

    Two of our websites are being hosted by 1 and 1 hosting. In all honesty, the sites don't always come up as easily as I would like and there have been other problems . Is there a way to test this company's (or thye web site) performance?

    One of the sites being hosted by them is our site on Lyme disease.


    your help in this matter is appreciated. Joe

    Here is one free service that can check one web site for you every 30 or 60 minutes. The free service only checks to see if it can connect to the site and does not give any type of site loading speed information. It sends e-mail reports of when a site is detected as being down and when it comes back up. You also get a free monthly report of total down time (if any).
