“Is my website down?”

isup

When somebody in your office (or maybe a client of yours) starts complaining that their website is down, calmly check it using Isup. Enter the URL, and it will tell you whether it’s down for just them…or everyone.

Put a big smile on your face when you say, “Sorry, Dick/Jane, it’s just you.”
