About Server Status Checker

Need to monitor website uptime across domains? Our free Server Status Checker makes it easy.

This tool tests server responses for up to 100 URLs simultaneously, revealing exactly why sites are down. Access HTTP status codes, ping tests and insights into why URLs fail or succeed loading.

Read on to understand how the Server Status Checker works, why monitoring uptime matters for performance and SEO, and how to leverage proactive alerts to prevent future outages.

What Is a Server Status Checker?

A Server Status Checker performs automated tests to monitor if websites are up and running properly.

The tool simulates browsers visiting URLs, checking the server response. If a website loads successfully, it will return a favorable status code like 200 OK.

If URLs fail loading, the checker reveals error codes like 500 or 404 highlighting why they’re unreachable.

Beyond examining response codes, our advanced checker tests:

  • Page loading speed: How long URLs take fully rendering
  • SSL certificate validity: If HTTPS sites have active SSL certificates preventing warnings
  • Uptime over time: Historical uptime percentage each day/week/month
  • Error log: Detailed reports clarifying the exact type of failure

With this comprehensive website monitoring, you can pinpoint and troubleshoot errors before visitors ever experience them.

Why Website Uptime and Speed Matters

Before we explore how to use the Server Status Checker, let’s discuss why monitoring uptime and speed is so crucial for SMBs and enterprises.

Every second of downtime or slow loading represents lost revenue, damaged credibility and negative SEO impacts. Consider that:

  • 53% of mobile site visitors abandon pages taking over 3 seconds to load
  • Just 1 minute of downtime costs ecommerce companies $5,600 in average lost sales

Speed and uptime also indirectly harm conversion rates and organic traffic:

  • Google ranks faster loading sites higher with speed as an official ranking factor
  • Visitors losing trust in an unavailable site are less likely to return and convert later

That’s why proactively monitoring server responses with our checker is invaluable. Identify the early warning signs of degradation so you can optimize stability and speed before poor performance frustrates customers.

How to Check Server Status of Websites

Our free tool makes checking server status across any sites quick and easy. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Head to the Server Status Checker page
  2. Enter up to 100 URLs you want to monitor (one per line)
  3. Click “Check Server Status”
  4. Scan the dashboard for response codes and identified errors

Within seconds, you’ll see color coded uptime status for every URL alongside response codes and timing metrics.

Green statuses indicate OK 200 responses from servers and sites actively loading.

Red statuses reveal 500 errors or broken 404/410 pages failing to load properly. Expand these to view detailed error logs clarifying precisely why URLs are unusable.

With a real browser visiting URLs from over 50 global locations, our Server Status Checker provides accurate website monitoring to uncover the root causes of dowtime.

Compare historical uptime reports to pinpoint exactly when performance declines began impacting visitors. Leverage this data to justify allocating technical resources for essential fixes and speed optimization.

Breakdown of Key Server Status Codes

Parsing detailed Server Status Checker reports will reveal various HTTP response codes conveying unique site statuses.

Here’s an overview of the most common status codes and what they indicate:

  • 200 OK: Website is actively loading and reachable
  • 301 Moved Permanently: Current URL redirects visitors. Update links/bookmarks.
  • 400 Bad Request: Browser request formatting error preventing server response
  • 401 Unauthorized: Login or permissions required to access webpage
  • 403 Forbidden: Server blocking access regardless of authentication
  • 404 Not Found: Server can't find specific file/webpage requested
  • 500 Internal Server Error: General server configuration issue stopping responses

Isolating these status codes within checker reports makes troubleshootingNEXT's problems simple. You’ll know exactly what actions to take whether updating server directives or just fixing broken links.

Server Monitoring Alerts Prevent Future Downtime

Beyond one-off checks, robust server monitoring setups feature automated alerting when performance degrades.

Configuring monitoring tools to email/SMS notifications when sites serve 500 errors or request times slow keeps you ahead of downtime threats.

Upon alert alerts, head to the Server Status Checker to validate issues and pinpoint root causes for quick mitigation. Leverage the detailed HTTP logs and historical reports to communicate urgency helping command priority from dev teams.

Setting response code thresholds and configuring email alerts creates a proactive web performance monitoring system. No more pulling reports manually hoping to catch errors in time.

Proactive server monitoring minimizes revenue and credibility loss that otherwise accompanies unexpected downtime. And preventing site failures helps instill lasting visitor confidence and loyalty in the process.
