Why doesn't Checkify offer feature X or feature Y?
We want to keep Checkify affordable for everyone around the world. There are so many uptime checkers around the world that offer far more features then we do. But they are usually more expensive and much more complex to use. We like to keep things simple.
How often do you check my urls?
We'll check your url every couple of minutes. This usually happens between every 1 to 3 minutes, but never longer than 5 minutes. This is to keep the load down on our servers and keep Checkify affordable.
Checkify says my url is down, but I can still visit it. What's wrong?
We always double check your url, but sometimes one of the internet routes to your url is not working properly. We'll always notify you when we see a problem. Just to be safe.
It could also be that it takes the bot longer than 7 seconds to get a response from your url, it is possible that your url is still reachable but performing extremely slowly. This usually indicates a problem, so we'll also notify you.
The bot says my site returns HTTP status code 526. What does this mean?
Occasionally we check your website through Cloudflare. Cloudflare implements it's own HTTP status codes alongside the standardized HTTP codes. For example; if you get a 526 error status code it means that you have an invalid SSL certificate. Check out all HTTP status codes here.
