I don’t know about the accuracy of this service, didn’t received any downtime alert till now. And hope to never get one in future.
One should definitely use any of such service to keep a track of his website’s downtime. If you are constantly experiencing down time with your current web host consider migrating to a good hosting company. I recommend Hostgator or Dreamhost. I have accounts with both of them. Both are good. Currently Theitechblog is hosted at HostGator, and some of my other websites are hosted at DreamHost.
Do let me know anytime you plan to buy a hosting plan from any of the two. I can arrange some good discount for you. Cheers! :-)
