ProsSiteUptime is inexpensive and has reliable service.

ConsThey don't have minute by minute checks.

Bottom LineIf you're looking for minute interval checks on multiple site this is not the best uptime monitor for you.

Good Service short on features

I have used SiteUptime for almost a year and they have been very reliable and accurate. The interface could be a bit easier to navigate around in but it allows you to accomplish most tasks.

Admittedly I am only using the free account so I can not comment on many of the advanced features. For a free monitoring service for one domain it is a good deal. If you are looking to monitor multiple domains and have a few more feature at a better price you may be better off looking somewhere else. With that being said if you do go with SiteUpTime you will not be disappointed in there service and that is really the most important aspect of an online monitoring company.
