📱 New Feature - SMS Alerts (for our Pro Plan users)

Here at the Domain Monitor we offer several ways to get notifications. These include: email, web, 3rd party integrations and more.

Today we're excited to reveal that you can now get alerted through SMS notifications.

We've been wanting to implement this feature for a long time, and in this article we'll digest how to get started with SMS alerts and notifications.

🚀 SMS Alerts for our Pro Plan

SMS alerts are available for our Pro Plan, so if you haven't already subscribed to this you'll need to subscribe to the Pro plan to unlock this notification type, but don't worry though, we also have a free plan without SMS alerts if that interests you.

How does it work?

When you enable SMS alerts you'll be able to configure the notification types that you'll like to receive, these can be:

  • Domain expiry
  • SSL expiry
  • Monitor down
  • Monitor up

💪 How do I set up SMS alerts?

To set up SMS alerts, you'll need to provide us with the international format mobile number that you'd like to receive alerts to, you can do this by:

  1. Firstly, log in to your account
  2. Next, head to your Notification Preferences, from here you'll find a new section called "SMS Notification Contact"
  3. Provide your mobile number in the international format without any special characters, spaces or symbols.

That's it!

We've put together another article over in our help center if you'd like more help on SMS alerts, we recommend checking that out too.

You'll be able to then enable the notification types that you'd like to receive SMS alerts for.

🔔 What is SMS useful for?

Did you know that on average, most people check their phones 58 times a day?

This is why SMS is a great tool.

Nobody likes website downtime caused by a domain name expiring or even your website going down...

Did you know that website downtime can cost as much as £10,000 per week?

In some cases it can cost even more.

This is why SMS notifications are really useful, you're likely to have your phone with you most times of the day so can get alertred of downtime as soon as it happens. Here's a few reasons why SMS is useful:

  • you might be able to ignore small website downtime
  • you'll be able to escalate downtime or domain related issues to your technical team
  • we'll alert you as soon as something happens

❌ Want to disable SMS notifications?

If you don't want to receive alerts from us anymore, you'll simply need to disable the notification types for SMS.

You could also remove your mobile number entirely from your Domain Monitor account if you don't plan to use this Pro feature for a while.
