Both solutions differ through the checkpoint locations. Monitoring by HTTPCS performs its checks from 50 data centers equally allocated around the world.

Just like HTTPCS, Uptime Robot solution is efficient on both web applications and servers to detect security incidents.

While the HTTPCS monitoring tool automatically performs a test every minutes (customizable), the Uptime Robot frequency efficiency depends on chosen plan. Therefore, it can differ from 1 to 5 minutes if the service is part of the plan or not.

HTTPCS and Uptime Robot can both perform tests based on complex scenarios, with evidence-based searching that goes deeper than the standard ping. By performing multiple tests, both solutions guarantee flawless false positives management (false alerts). With its advanced technology, HTTPCS even performs complex fingerprint tests, which anticipates downtimes.

Both monitoring tools offer unlimited users, which is very useful for larger working teams.

Monitoring by HTTPCS stands out from Uptime Robot with its data storage policy:

HTTPCS, thanks to its exclusive “Virtual Browser” technology, provides a very simple tool to record monitoring scenarios (transaction monitoring tool) with no technical skill required. The scenarios are automatically replayed every 15 minutes by a real browser, and are manually re-playable at any time.
