What is BinaryCanary.com?
BinaryCanary.com is a world leading website and server monitoring service. It will detect failures of your website or server and will issue alerts to specified contacts.
Do I have to install software to use it?
No. It is a completely hosted application which means that there is no software to install, and it can be accessed and configured through any standard web browser.
Why should I perform server monitoring or website monitoring?
All web sites and networks will experience failures. The only question is how you want to be notified. Personally, we would like to alert you of a failure, rather than your clients or the media.
Why should I perform email server monitoring?
Do you rely on email for your business? If so, then you should be sure that it is functioning. Missed emails could mean missed opportunities, which will have a direct effect on your bottom line.
How much does the service cost?
Our services start at $5 per month. See the pricing page for full details.
Is there a free trial?
There is an option for free service which is limited to 15 minute monitoring. See our pricing page for full details.
What happens if your monitoring network has a failure?
Our network is built for full redundancy. If one of our monitoring nodes experiences a failure, the monitoring tasks will automatically be re-assigned to a different node until the failure is resolved. This happens within about a minute so there should be no effect on your monitoring.
What time zone is used for alerts and reports?
You can choose to see reports in any time zone you choose. Each user can have a different default time zone, and we will always show you time entries according to "your" local time.
How can I link to you?
We'd love it if you would. See our linking page for options.
