My thanks to Oh Dear for sponsoring last week at Daring Fireball. Oh Dear is a website monitor that offers peace of mind as a service. If you run a website and your website is down, you know what would-be visitors do: they close the tab and move on to the next site. When’s the last time you waited more than a few seconds for a site to load? If your site is monitored by Oh Dear, you’ll find out right way when it’s down, however you want to be notified — through email, SMS, Slack, webhooks, or any of a bunch of other options.
Oh Dear is not your average website monitor. They’re an all-in-one service offering complete website coverage, and of particular note for the discerning DF audience, Oh Dear is obsessive about their user interface and experience. Nerdy, yes, but beautiful too.
