I didn't know they offered a partnership?

I have a nodeping account I could give you some checks on.

I wouldn't trust NodePing with anything, tried it after considering moving away from Pingdom (due to the costs) but it's just far too spotty. It's similar to doing it yourself and slapping the monitoring system on ServerCrate..

It's not... All monitoring via Nodeping has been 100% to me.

I haven't had any false positives other than down alerts being for 'packetloss' but I want to be alerted of that as it's not normal operations.

Nodeping is good.

You can setup the number of retries before an alert is sent:

It is only spotty if you want it to be spotty.

I would take NodePing over Pingdom any day. I used to think Pingdom was good but that was until I noticed that they didn't notify me of ANY outages they recorded. I thought I was getting good service from them until I decided to login to my account and see they were registering outages none of my other monitors saw and weren't even bother notifying me of any downtime they recorded.

I'm taking a look at the NodePing API now and hope to integrate it into WHMCS for our clients in the near future. :)

Hmm... The advertisements on the right hand side of VPSBoard are telling me that you can get nodeping monitoring here

We do indeed offer NodePing to our customers.  Just open a ticket and request it.

It's all about choosing a nearby region (i.e. US vs EU) and tuning the sensitivity.  We've had far fewer false positives since doing that.
