Another monitoring website?

No, ours is not an uptime monitoring service. For that there are already other uptime services out there. Our service will alert you of any changes to the web site filesystem. Whether it's your colleague to upload a file on your website or is a cracker who manages to load a shell or a backdoor or a malware, you will be the first to know. Then of course if we can not contact your server (because it's down or has some PHP problem) we will also notify you of that, but this is a side effect.

Can I try MonitorWebsiteFileChanges.cloud for free?

Yes, if you register for the first time we will give you a welcome package of 1'500 free credits. For more information visit our pricing page.

My site is hosted on XYZ ? Will your monitoring script work on my hosting?

Most likely yes. The requirements for your hosting are a recent version of PHP (at least version 5.3.3) and support for OpenSSL and Zlib libraries. If in doubt, make a test using your free credit. The monitoring script that we give you will check automatically that all requirements are met.

Is it complicated to activate your service on my website?

No, there aren't complicated procedures. Just sign up, enter the url of your website, upload to your space the monitoring PHP file, and you're done. Anyone can do it, you do not need to be a system administrator.

Are my website stats affected?
