⚠️ Introducing public Status Pages [v1]

👋 It's Ryan from the Domain Monitor and I'm pleased to announce that we've just launched our public Status Pages v1.

For a little while, we've been working on enabling support for you to share website uptime with your customers through the use of Status Pages, and our very first implementation of this, version 1 is now live.

In this article, I'm going to highlight some of the features of our Status Pages and why you should create one today.

Let's dive a little deeper...

🤔 What are Status Pages?

Have you ever had trouble trying to access big brand websites?

You load up the website only to find that you see some error, or maybe the website doesn't load at all?

There's a service called Down Detector, and it's commonly used to find out whether a service such as a website or app is working.

People like you and I submit reports to these down detector websites in order to help others identify whether there's an issue with their device or network connection.

Status Pages are very similar, they help communicate website uptime and down events in the past and help your customers identify whether your service is working as it should.

There are already services out there that enable you to create a Status Page for your website, such as status.io but these come at a cost, and usually require the use of multiple services and platforms to get up and running.

If you've already got an account with Domain Monitor then you'll be able to add your monitors to your Status Page and share a link with customers instantly.

🚨 Status Pages v1

We've just launched our Status Pages v1 and will gradually be implementing additional features to them over the forthcoming weeks and months based on your feedback, so we'd love to hear what you think about them.

Currently we're providing support for you to add monitors to your Status Pages and give your Status Page a name and homepage URL, we'll use this URL for redirecting customers to your website if they're looking for a link.

Our Status Pages are completely free and it takes just a few minutes to get set up with one.

🚀 Creating a Status Page

In order to create a Status Page, you must have a Domain Monitor account, if you don't already have one you can create an account for free.

Next, you'll want to head into your account's profile and find the new link to Status Pages, from here you'll be able to create a page.

Creating your very first Status Page couldn't be simpler, just select the monitors that you'd like to add to your Status Page, give it a name for your customers to recognise you and if applicable, your website or service URL (we recommend your website's homepage URL).
