Is it too much to ask? All I want is to find a reliable, Web-based program that provides me with a usable UI to monitor a Web site of mine. I have looked into half a dozen possibilities — all are either expensive or completely useless.

So now I am asking you, the LockerGnome readership. Do you have suggestions as to an application that is Web-based that will alert me in as many ways as possible to a Web site going out? If you have suggestions, then I am all ears (well, eyes).

I am even okay with spending a reasonable amount of money for something like this, but based on what I have seen thus far, the options out there are far from reasonably priced. There you have it, please help if you can. I am definitely open to some new possibilities. Happy New Year!
