Uptime Robot vs WhaTap: What are the differences?

Uptime Robot: Free website uptime monitor. Uptime Robot is all about helping you to keep your websites up. It monitors your websites every 5 minutes and alerts you if your sites are down; WhaTap: Check the status of your website for free URL monitoring. It provides improvement points to locate the source of problems in hidden areas that were not found in other products.

Uptime Robot and WhaTap can be categorized as "Website Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Uptime Robot are:

  • http(s): that's perfect for website monitoring. The service regularly sends requests (which are the same as if a visitor is browsing your website) to the URL and decides if it is up or down depending on the HTTP statuses returned from the website (200-success, 404-not found, etc.)
  • ping: this is good for monitoring a server. Ping (ICMP) requests are sent and up/down status is decided according to the "if responses are received or not". Ping is not a good fit for monitoring websites as a website (its IP) can respond to ping requests while it is down (which means that the site is down but the server hosting the site is up)
  • keyword: checks if a keyword exists or not exists in a web page

On the other hand, WhaTap provides the following key features:

  • Easy to install and quickly experience
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Integrated monitoring
