Web Server Monitoring Goes to Australia

January 31, 2006, Plymouth, Minnesota — Dotcom-Monitor
has just added Sydney as its newest web server monitoring location, bringing
executive class monitoring to Australia.

“Companies need to know how their web sites respond to customer
usage,” says Vadim Mazo, CEO of Dotcom-Monitor. “Adding the
Sydney monitoring station means they will now be alerted if
their web site is inaccessible or slow to Australian customers.”

The Sydney’s monitoring station is a robot that visits a
company’s web site, simulating a human visitor, and performs
various functions, including surfing, form-testing, shopping
cart usage, etc. Performance speed, accessibility and response
times simulate a human user’s experience.

Companies depend on remote web server performance monitoring to respond
quickly to emergencies (such as an order form no working), as
well as to plan for long term upgrades to ensure maximum
satisfaction for customers. It is estimated that $20 to $40
billion is lost each year from users who abandon slow loading
web sites.

Global web site monitoring secures customers world-wide

Global marketers understand that web sites respond differently
in different parts of the world due to trans-Atlantic
connections, bottlenecks, the quality of local connections, etc.
“Just because a web site performs well in New Jersey, does not
mean a customer in Sydney or London benefits from the same
performance,” Mr. Mazo says. “Monitoring your web servers from
Sydney will tell you if you need to make changes to better serve
your Australian market.”

While only 13% of U.S. home users still use sub-56K Internet
connections, that number is much higher in less developed
countries, meaning web sites optimized for U.S. customers might
not perform well overseas.

Sydney is the tenths monitoring station in Dotcom-Monitor’s
global network. The other five sites are:

- London, UK - Minnesota, USA - New York, USA - California, USA
- Florida, USA - Calgary, Canada - Colorado, USA - Frankfurt,
Germany - Honk Kong, China
