External Monitoring Web App

I am looking for a free web application service that will monitor my websites.

Due to some concerns over clarity I am adding some additional information on what monitor means.

  1. The basic. Is the website up?
  2. Is the website responding to a speed that is acceptable
  3. Is the website returning the home page html that should me rendering.

2, and 3 are optional, my main concerns are if the website is up.

Monitor if they are available or monitor for changes? –  Saxtus Feb 27 '11 at 10:01

Check out Pingdom. They have a free account to monitor one website.

The question is too inaccurate to answer. You can monitor a website in a lot of different ways and at a lot of different levels: Are you the owner or an interested visitor? Do you need technical (speed, html compliancy, load on the backend servers, ... ) or functional (how many visitors, what did they read, what is latest article).

Depending on what you want and what your position is the simple RSS feed may be sufficient, or PiWik, or Google analytics.
