WHSR has been running on WP Engine Hosting for slightly more than two months now. Everything is looking great and the site recorded 100% server uptime according to Pingdom (see image below).
So… yeah, I am happy with my new host. :)
How Pingdom check WHSR uptime? Pingdom sent a HTTP request to WHSR every 5 minute 24/7. A HTTP check loads a web page without any linked objects included; a ‘down time’ will be recorded if WHSR server fails to respond to the request. Pingdom will then send monthly report to your register email (as well as SMS alert) to keep you notified. For instance, the image shown here is extracted from a standard monthly Pingdom report.
