Automatic Website Checker
Is your site online?
Automatic Webhost Checker (AKA "F*ck You iPage") is a tool that periodically checks:
1. if your web host is online
2. downloads a file from a web server and checks if download's size is correct.
Useful to check if your web host is online and if it has any disconnect problems.
Why this program?
We created Webhost Checker program because we had big big problems with our webhost iPage.com (a sincere FuckYou to them). Their support was totally useless so we had to fix the problem by ourself. The program will work with any web host/server not only with iPage.com.
User manual for Module 1
The Automatic File Download Tester module will download the specified file from your web site every x seconds. If the downloaded file size is correct then it will display the message "Download ok.", else it will display the message "File size doesn't match."
User manual for Module 2
The Automatic Webpage Ping module replaces the good old PING command. Some hosting companies (say now aloud a big FUCK YOU to them) don't answer to PING so you cannot check on them if they are online or offline.
Also if they shuts down your web site will replace your site with a default web page (their page or a warning message like "Your account has been suspended. Contact us"). So, you also cannot check if a specific URL (for example your site home page) returns a 200 page or 404 page.
