A WP Elevation interview with Cory Miller, and StatusCake as an alternative to Pingdom. The past few weeks have been really busy around here, so not much time to find stuff for this post series. 🙂
WP Elevation Episode #14 – Cory Miller – Great interview by Troy Dean with Cory Miller of iThemes and BackupBuddy fame. If your business involves the internet, websites, plugins, WordPress, etc., then this is a highly recommended interview to listen to or watch. BackupBuddy is the single most important plugin on any website I build, and hearing the history behind it was enlightening!
StatusCake – Earlier this week I was looking for a possible alternative to Pingdom and came across StatusCake. While Pingdom only allows you to monitor one website for free before moving to a paid plan, StatusCake has an unlimited free plan, and their paid plans are more affordable than Pingdom. Beyond the pricing differences, they claim to have significant advantages over Pingdom.
I agree that Pingdom plan is not good at all as you pay only for one computer. That is why I looked for its alternatives as well. I decided to use Anturis. At the moment I am satisfied with what I have about the website and network monitoring with Anturis.
