Pingcop provides an automated service that allows you to monitor the "health" of IT services that are critical to your business. Pingcop can be as simple monitoring a single website. It also has the power and features to monitor more complex IT services such as e-commerce systems, internet connections, WANs, mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange Server, SSL connections, FTP, etc.

What exactly is a "monitor"?

A "monitor" is an individual entry into your Pingcop account representing the IT service that you wish to monitor, such as your website. Additional IT services that you wish to monitor, such as your mail server, or internet connection, would be an additional monitor entry in your Pingcop account.
