How can I increase the uptime of my website?



I'm using a free hosting provider for my website. Unfortunately my site is sometimes down for several hours. Is there any way PRTG can help me to increase the uptime of my website?

Free hosting providers have at least one disadvantage, there uptime not always being what you want it to be.

So what is better than using a free hosting provider? Use two free hosting providers!

Custom Sensor HTTPFailoverSite checks your website at the failover provider, without your DNS records actually pointing there.
