Web Page Check

Checks the targeted page source to ensure the entered text is returned. An Alert is generated where the text is not discovered as this is indicative of a problem with the site, for example it may be that it is unreachable or the content has changed.

There are various uses for this check including:

Monitor ClientÂ’s websites. Although it is possible you do not support the website, our users use this check to illustrate the exceptional standard of care they provide to their customers.

"Even though we don't maintain your website, we'll monitor it anyway and give you a courtesy call when there's something wrong with it."

Query an application's browser based interface or publish application information to a webpage and use the Web Page Check to determine whether the required test is, or is not, there.

Ensure the ADSL static IP address for the server has not changed. To do this query a Show My IP type address site and enter the current static IP address as the Expected Text. When the IP address changes the check will fail.
