How It Works

Add a website to monitor

Enter your web site URL (http or https) and your E-mail (we will send alert to that E-mail).

If you want you can also specify other options such as: Check frequency, File names to monitor, Path and files to exclude (Unix shell-style wildcards supported) and Additional comma separated CC email addresses to alert of any changes.

Add a website to monitor for file changes

Upload the monitoring file and verify it

Follow on screen instructions and then click verify.

If the Verification Check is successful your site is monitored by our bots. This means that on a regular basis our bot request the list of files, their size and modification time to the PHP script that you uploaded to your web site. Then the bot compare this list with the latest snapshot and alert you in case some file where added, deleted or modified.

The monitoring script, for every website, has a unique file name and contains two unique key: the request key and the encryption key. The request key is used by our bot to ask for the file list, while the encryption key is used by the script to secure the data trasferred from your website to our bot. This ensures the safety even in the absence of the HTTPS protocol.

Verify a website to start monitoring of any file changes

Open your dashboard

Once you have confirmed your account, following the activation link that we sent to your email, you can log into your dashboard.

From the dashboard you can view your website changelog, add new website to check or change the monitoring settings of a website. If you modify the settings of a website there is no need to reupload the PHP script.

The changelog graph shows for the past 24 hours the status of your website. A red mark indicates that in that hour there have been changes to the filesystem. An orange mark indicates that the site was not reachable. A green mark indicates that there has been no change and a gray mark indicates that the site was not checked.
