Why check page status code on a regular basis

This bulk status code checker allows you to instantly detect any unwanted downtime, which lets you quickly identify and address the underlying issues. As a result, you can avoid any problems with search engine indexation, prevent user dissatisfaction, and ensure your services are operating smoothly around the clock. This automated solution makes the task of maintaining a website simple and straightforward.

The bot can be used to check status code of URL lists periodically, i.e. to check whether one or more websites are up and running in real-time. The checks are performed according to a preset schedule. The bot periodically tries to access a resource and notifies the user if the site returns any status code other than 200 (OK), offering a convenient way to constantly monitor the availability of your websites without “poking” at them manually.

Additionally, the periodic URL status code checker creates a log that keeps track of all checks carried out under the current task. This way, you will know if any malfunctions have been detected even if you’ve missed the corresponding notification. You can download the detected status codes on your job page.

Frequently asked questions

Open the URL status code checker’s start page, enter your links, set checking periodicity, and launch the bot. You’ll receive notifications according to your settings.

The larger your site, the more pages it has, the more frequently it is updated with new content and products, and the higher its traffic volume, the more often you should check for 404 errors. Small-scale sites don’t need such frequent monitoring.

The bot crawls your URLs according to a preset schedule and imitates opening them. Whenever a URL returns a 404 error, the bot notifies you immediately.
