StatusCake vs StillAlive: What are the differences?
Developers describe StatusCake as "Feature Rich Uptime Monitoring, Domain Monitoring, SSL Monitoring and a whole lot more". Monitoring a website is one thing – finding the best way to alert you to downtime another. At StatusCake we give you as many options as possible to decide when & how often you’re contacted. Whether it’s by email, SMS, push notifications for iOS & Android or integration with third party apps including Zapier and PagerDuty – you decide how you want to be alerted and when!. On the other hand, StillAlive is detailed as "A simple, easy to implement way to check that your website is up, and also that it's still working properly". Using our stories feature, you can test many different features of your live, production website. It could be you need to find out if logins are working. Whatever it is, StillAlive can (or will) be able to test it.
StatusCake and StillAlive can be categorized as "Website Monitoring" tools.
Some of the features offered by StatusCake are:
- Truly Global Monitoring
- SureAlert – No False Positives
- Domain Monitoring
On the other hand, StillAlive provides the following key features:
- Nothing to install- All you need to do is create a script that mimics the behaviour path you want to have us test.
- Make sure your site works as expected- StillAlive doesn't just ping your website to see if it is online. It mimics the actual behaviour of your users, viewing your site as your users would and navigating around doing real stuff. So don't just make sure your website is responding with a 200 OK, make sure your shopping cart works, or that users can log in.
- High Availability- StillAlive helps you make sure your application is online, 24x7.
