    If you need a free service Monitor.Us (http://www.monitor.us/) is an absolute top player. However, its premium version Monitis (http://www.monitis.com/) has a lot more to offer in terms of full – end to end monitoring. You can monitor basically everything – starting from your website all the way down to infrastructure level (servers, databases).
    It offers 30+ monitoring locations to check your website uptime and load times.

    I wonder which of these monitoring-providers you would recommend to webhosting-providers, or web-agencies, so they can either use for themselves or even resell to their cPanel-clients?
