    On another note, I think this is a very excellent idea. I'm aware RTB does this but a single source never sits well with me. Whether the review be good or bad I believe multiple reviews and information are a good thing.

    Their reviews are just checkboxes. They all start with "this host has a control panel". Plus we want to add more features

    I've found RTB to be pretty inaccurate, saying hosts have had downtime that they didn't have, so I am glad to see that you guys are making your own service.

    RTB is very reliable, and the stream hosts that show downtime on there don't actually want to admit it.

    RTB monitors only one server...when a company may have 8 or 9. If that one goes down, then the whole company's reliability goes down. That's why the host should actually use a server not hooked up to cognet (or other cheap bandwidth) when determining reliability.

    I've seen it report downtime that never happened. Not saying the whole thing is inaccurate, but I certainly trust paid monitoring services such as Hyperspin over RTB.

    Also, about the Cogent thing, Cogent really isn't that bad. FDC gave them a bad name. But I do agree, single homing something on pure Cogent is a complete mistake.

    Don't you use Alphared? They're using mostly all Cogent in their outbound mix ;)

    We are using stream alerts for our monitoring. They are awesome and their service suits what we wanted exactly. We are still adding features for it like uptime and whatnot

    I do not have the AR server anymore as AR went under. I never said you shouldn't use Cognet yourself. I simply said that you shouldn't put a server that you want to show 100% uptime on the cognet network. I still use plenty of servers on cognet to this day..but they aren't being monitored by RTB or other services. I know they can go down more than other providers, but it is still pretty reliable for the price. It's certainly not 100% though ;-)
