Starting January 1, 2019 AlertFox and associated services will no longer function as we sunset this Ipswitch product. 

AlertFox has been a workhorse for hundreds of companies over the years helping them with website uptime and performance monitoring. So it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to AlertFox for all that it has done for so many companies over the years.

However, although AlertFox will not be with us much longer, we do have a popular alternative that you can check out. We recommend that our customers and anyone who was considering AlertFox take a look at Uptrends. Uptrends provides all the basic features and functionality that was included in AlertFox and much more. 

Uptrends is an all-in-one monitoring tool that includes the following:

  • Website Uptime Monitoring – Uptrends helps you deliver on that expectation, monitoring HTTP(S), web services (SOAP, REST API), SSL Certificates, DNS, and servers, alerting your team instantly.
  • Website Performance Monitoring – With Uptrends, you can also track your website performance issues, including slow first/third-party page elements, and view rich waterfall reports to help prevent failures and downtime, using Uptrends’ easy-to-use tools.
  • Web Application Monitoring – e-Commerce is an integral part of any healthy online business, so when it comes to e-Commerce websites, uptime is money. Uptrends can monitor your website transactions and ensure that your shopping carts, payment modules, order confirmations, and other critical pages run smoothly. With Uptrends, you can also be rest-assured your login forms and other critical functions are working smoothly. 
  • Real User Monitoring (RUM) – Real User Monitoring (RUM) gets you data from your real users in real time. View load times per browser, OS and device type.

An additional feature that you may find useful in Uptrends is their API Monitoring functionality. This allows you to test and monitor all your APIs connected to your website and ensure they are working 24/7.
