The Montastic servers are in Austin Texas in the USA. When they report an outage, the problem might not be your site, but the Internet links to Austin. When you get an outage it help to check with several friends over the globe to see if any of them can get through. It also helps to try access via IP (Internet Protocol) (perhaps by setting up a HOSTS. entry) to see if the problem is purely in DNS (Domain Name Service) lookup, or lookup in some localised part of the net. Also check HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and email separately. Your server may be physically up with some of its software crashed.
Beware. Similar services sometimes report false outages attempting to convince you to switch ISP (Internet Service Provider) website hosting providers.
Host-Tracker is particularly interesting because it shows availability from spots all over the planet. However, it can show a site it up when it is not, because it accepts cached pages as counting as up.
