DigitalOcean Uptime is a monitoring service that checks the health of any URL or IP address. You can use it to monitor the latency, uptime, and SSL certificate of any website or host, and can choose to receive alerts via email or Slack when your site is down, experiencing high latency, or has an SSL certificate that’s about to expire.

To create your first Uptime Check, click the Create a new Uptime Check button on the Uptime landing page. If you’ve already created a check, the Create Uptime Check button will be in the upper portion of the page, above your list of existing checks.

The following regions are available:
You must select one or more regions.
Enter a name for the check.
Press the Create button. Your Uptime check is created and its status page loads, pending data from the first checks.
As results start coming in, the latency graph populates with data, but you will need to refresh the page to get up-to-date check status information.
