Nice tool to check whether a site is down for everybody, or just for you.
“About This Service
CheckSite.us is a simple service that allows a user to check to see if a site is actually down, or if it is just the user’s machine or network. If you are experiencing problems accessing a specific website, simply enter the website’s URL in the form above, and CheckSite.us will attempt to access the URL provided and report back on whether it was able to access the website or not.
Unlike other similar services, our service allows you to enter a domain (i.e. checksite.us), a full length URL (i.e. checksite.us/test.htm), or a domain with a specific port (i.e. checksite.us:2082). We also allow IP addresses to be used in place of a domain name (i.e. 126.96.36.199:2082).
For websites that we cannot access, we now allow you to enter your e-mail address and we’ll continue trying the website every 30 minutes for up to 3 days. If we are successful at accessing the website, we’ll send you an e-mail.”
