I chose Rails and MongoDB to build updown.io because it's very convenient and already in my skill set. This allows me to save on development and research time. The schema-less design of MongoDB allows for easier migrations and the replicaset feature for easier ops.

Lots of options to use when it comes to website uptime monitoring. Price differences are so low that this is no longer a factor. We ended up choosing updown.io because it just feels right: look and feel, dashboard, easy to edit and add properties, clear and nice transparency overall. It just feels good. updown.io is using a credit system that can be managed by the timeframe you choose to get the site(s) checked!. Although I use credit card for payment - there is the option to pay via BTC. I'll probably never use that - it's nice to see it though. :)
