    As far as I remember my hosting provider guarantees 99.9% uptime time, so I will not have to worry about it.

    I never really thought that so many sites and blogs go down that such service was invented.

    Melody, computers crash. There is no stopping them. be it desktop or the server running your blog, they tend to crash. Even if it goes down only once a year, if my income depended on my website I would want to know if it’s down for even just a few minutes. Mine doesn’t but you see who’d want to see this service invented. :-)

    Of course, ShanKri-la was down for a few minutes sometime last month because I had assumed my wife renewed our hosting and she assumed I did! :twisted: Montastic alerted me that it was down and I was able to restore the site in a very short time. It’s something you may not use everyday but good to have, just in case.

    Adrian, sorry I just rescued you from my spam filter.

    The hosting provider does not protect our blogs against stuff like high CPU utilization or some other runaway process messing up the server resulting in the hosting provider killing our blog processes. For eg, if your blog post reaches Slashdot or Digg’s front page, you could get notified with this. Not that either one has happened to me yet.
