There is a new feature as part of the uptime robot monitoring service which allows for custom status pages using our domain name. This is a DNS cname mapped to their website so when you visit this URL you're viewing content on their servers.

Bookmark this link below to check the status of this site in the event that you are unable to load the page.

One quick note. The top status check actually tries to loading the main web page and looks for a status of 200 (this checks that all services are up). The second status checks only by issuing a ping to the server. It's possible for the ping to respond but the main page to not load because the database down.

No, I only had to update the DNS for this domain and add a CNAME entry that maps that URL to their site and they do all the work to make the page. This way the page should display even if our site is down.
